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.

  1. Make it possible to assign the TSC a task in the "title registration" workflow

    At the moment it is not possible for the workflow manager to assign a TSC a task in the workflows at the title reg workflow stage so a work-around has to be used when assigning a task (for example, a scoping search to assess the likelihood of finding eligible studies).

    • Add task 'Send thanks/feedback to referees and advisors'

      This task should be added to Title Registration, Protocol and Review Development workflows. CRGs may wish to send thanks and feedback (eg. by way of the collated editorial comments) to their referees, but there does not at present appear to be a task for this - neither standard nor optional.

        Implemented: as an interim improvement, this task is now in the set of predefined custom tasks that CRGs can easily insert into their custom templates.


        This should be included as default task the next time the templates are updated.

        Note: currently CRGs have the option of manually adding this as a custom task to all their relevant templates.

      • resize the viewing pane when editing task email templates

        when editing task email templates the viewing screen is VERY SMALL - it is necessary to scroll up and down to locate the email to be checked / amended / edited etc etc.

        If the viewing pane were bigger this would save so much time!! and make locating task emails easier.

        There is plenty of redundant space in the frame.

        thanks for considering this.

        • To insert an extra workflow section for post-CEU screening changes

          If the CEU suggests changes to a new review following screening, there is no way for this to be implemented within the current workflow. If you backtrack the workflow so the authors can resubmit a revised version it is automatically re-sent to the CEU for screening again.

          • Add permission requirements to templates

            For instance, for the task 'Submit draft protocol for editorial approval' you need write permission to the review. As alert to manager at start of task. Note: Dependent of new Archie functionality as well as template changes.

            • Ability for tasks to modify resources

              E.g., for a task to automatically change the read phase of the latest version of a review. As a checkbox on task properties that is checked by default. Note: Dependent of new Archie functionality as well as template changes.
