Archie

Please note that we are only expecting to make a few improvements to Archie for the moment. Our resources need to be focussed on advancing other critical projects, such as RevMan. Your suggestions are still very welcome and will be collected, but they are not likely to be implemented in the immediate future.

Tell us what you need.
Start with a short label and then a fuller description. If you can, try to include a ‘user story’ as the first line of the description. A user story is about clearly telling is who you are, what you want and why you need it.
Example: “As an author, I want to edit my review on my tablet, so I can finish it faster.”

How can we improve Archie?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Time-sensitive alerts and reports

    As a Managing Editor, I would find it immensely helpful if Archie could alert me when a task or milestone has taken a certain amount of time and has not been completed. For example, for Milestone A it would be great if Archie could tell me when it has been 6 months since the title was registered and a first draft hasn't been submitted. For peer review, it would be useful to know when the process for identifying PRs and receiving their feedback has exceeded 3 months (ie from the start of Milestone C).

    At the moment, for example, it…

    • Reviews with the most translations

      At the start of every new month I contact Javier to ask him to send me a spreadsheet of Cochrane Reviews with the most translations for the previous month. He has suggested it could be added as a new feature in Archie in the future, so that I can get the data from there.

      • Allow export of publication date

        You can search for Reviews published on, after, before, a certain date, but you cannot export the publication date.

        There are more inconsistencies like that: data fields that are stored, but cannot be searched for, data fields that cannot be exported. Especially true for translations!

        • Add review numbers in the person report

          For the person report generated in the info tab it would useful to list the review number beside the title that the person is attached to.

            For example, it could be an icon or a report.

              UXG agreed on 15 April.

              Will be implemented so it is easy to see when a reveiw in Editorial phase is missing COI forms. Will also consider the commnent that the forms should be sent/required as part of submitting for editorial approval.

              • Clickable data in Workflow Role Report

                For instance, click on the number of overdue tasks for a person, to see a list of them. At the moment, the only option is to run the search but this returns all the tasks (additionally including completed, not started and in progress) which may have too much data.
