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. A new search field in Archie under Document Search/Latest Published Version: "Version {has/has not} translation in {Language}"

    "Every month the French translation team plans their work by reviewing a list of new published reviews and new versions of reviews [...] Now the question is, if the list could exclude reviews for which the French translation has been re-published automatically due to no changes in the Abstract for the new version of the review."

    • Searching organizations in Archie

      As a Cochrane Centre staff, I want to highlight the support I provided to hospitals and specific organizations in my country, and currently I cannot search by organization. I can use e-mail address domain name as a proxy, but it is problematic as might not cover all users affiliated to one place, specially for those with multiple affiliations.

        • Make it possible to search for derivative products by Review Group

          An Advanced Search option on Derivative Products would allow us to quickly identify which of our reviews have been converted to Podcasts or CCAs. We can then link them our websites,

          • Add an Advanced Search option for active reviews with no In progress or Pending workflows

            Add an Advanced Search option for active reviews with no 'In progress' or 'Pending' workflows. This will allow you to quickly export a list of all active reviews with no workflow.

            • Searching for comparisons in Archie

              Part of the process of selecting title proposals for registration includes searching for overlap with other existing reviews.

              At the moment, the title is used to automatically identify similar reviews in Archie. It would be helpful to search by comparison. This would enable editorial base staff to idenfity all reviews with the same comparisons, as a way of identifying overlap with new proposals.

                Quick value score 2

                Pros: +3 High value;
                Cons: -1 Hard to do;

                May be easier to implement after move to Review Database (as part of RevMan Web).

                May also be superseded by Linked data project.

                Note that this possible with a slightly complicated Review Version Search statement, however this would not pick up reviews in progress – let us know if we should try crafting such a statement for you.

              • Indicate in the resources section if a title's most recent publication and if it is, is it the 1st, 2nd 3rd etc

                In the resource tab beside the title there is a T, P or an R tp report at which stage the title is at. It would be very useful to have a "U" for update option here, to see quickly which titles have had updated published. Also perhaps "U1" "U2" "U3" to indicate how many updates have been completed.
