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".
(thinking…)

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. Add an expiry date or date for revision on the updating tab

    As an Managing Editor I would like to know if any notes on the updating tab for publication with the review have gone out of date eg. if I have said that an update is pending and will be published in Month x, at the end of Month x, if there has been a delay and the review is not published, I would want to easily identify any out of date notes, or perhaps be alerted to them. There needs to be a searchable expiry date at least.

    • Peer-review dashboard for Co-eds

      As a coordinating editor, I will like to have a review dashboard that will allow me, from only one screen, see how many iterations the review has (i.e. times author has submitted for editorial approval), a. ll files from the peer-review (form and comments when submitted) ordered by peer-referee and submission and responses from authors. I will like to be able to see the date of search

      • Training server more easily distinguished from live Archie server

        I am currently learning to use Archie and often have both the training server and the Archie server open at the same time. Because they look so similar it is easy to become confused about which server I am currently working on. Perhaps a different colour?

        • Rebrand the Archie interface

          As a general user I want Cochrane web sites and tools to look similar, so I can easily recognise them, and find similar functions in the same place.

          Archie should be using the new brand (logos, style and meta-navigation).

            • In Resources tree view under People, Author should be plural (Authors)

              Rationale: The contact author is listed under Author as well so there is always more than one author.

              • Permissions for calendar in Archie

                As an ME, it would be useful to be able to use the calendar in the Organiser tab as a tool for the editorial base to indicate shared deadlines (outwith the workflows), meetings and annual leave. Currently, we cannot restrict permissions to a single role (i.e. superuser), meaning that anyone with a role with our Group can see events that we add.

                • Personalised views

                  Offer personalised views in Archie to users to show them only what is relevant when it is relevant. E.g. authors could choose to see only the reviews they are involved together with a summary of workflows/tasks and a list of outstanding LfP/CoI forms.

                  • Highlight entire table row when clicking

                    In Resources or in Results for a Search, when clicking on a row only the first column is highlighted. It would be better to highlight the entire line (as it is already the case on the Admin interface).

                    • Display the email address of a person on the "people" tab of review properties window

                      It would be useful if the email address of a person highlighted on the people tab of the review properties could be shown with the other data at the bottom of the screen. At the moment four other fields are shown for a person, the date the role was assigned, address, affiliation and notes. It's very common to open a person's record soly to copy or verify their primary email address. Having it displayed on the people tab would save having to click through the individual record. It's a small thing but one I've noticed I repeat over and over…
