Development of the darkmatter Project

  • Add Abstract to be submitted for Articles on Journal Submission - submit work page/section
  • Update peer review info on Submission page & link to wiki
  • Explore alternative self-hosted (CMS?) solution for Editorial Team admin & communications, instead of relying on google services - e.g. test Elgg
  • Check journal citation indexing, e.g. google scholar and pdf indexing/archiving
  • Shifting to more advanced web-host: WebFaction - faster site, greater flexibility in running software; though requires recruiting a darkmatter developer with experience of server shell commands, installing software from source etc.
  • Use SSL httpss: * Open bank account (Co-Op) * Check on acquiring Charity status: not pursuing == Wordpress == The darkmatter Journal is hosted on a relatively inexpensive shared hosting environment, and currently uses the software platform Wordpress: * Add link to wiki on menu bar * Upgrade Wordpress to current version * Host darkmatter WordPress code changes on GitHub? * Add donate button (check on methods in addition to paypal) * Add PDF & EPub download plugins (find ones that work for multiple authors) - do after upgrading Wordpress * Add citation (reference for an article) at end of a post page * Plugin for custom ordering posts (not based on date) * AddThis plugin (and facebook Share vs. Like button; adding Google+ button)? - problem with privacy * Plugin: paragraph level permanent links - * Privacy issues/tracking when using FB share (like) button? Alternative code such as shareNice or socialshareprivacy, else recommend to readers Firefox plugin ShareMeNot * Get rid of Google analytics tracking and switch to open source/self-hosted Piwik * Make WP more secure (change some backend stuff) * Automate Site Backup * Explore replacing comments section with Disqus because of its integration with other social media; though consider privacy issues * Test/add OAI plugin for archiving journal content via DOAJ == dev-Discussion-List == Test software for dev-discussion list - needs to be free/open-source and ideally self-hosted with features enabling posting via email and via a web interface (forum/archive): * - has a good set of features though limited discussion board * - integrates well with wordpress, need to check features * googlegroups - commercial/evil/ads! but has good features, similar to a forum for posting via web * Mailman - self-hosted; widely used & solid but basic, with limited archive & no web reply interface; can use Mail Archive for a searchable public archive * - too basic * - good features but complex installation * JISCMail (Listserv type hosted) - similar to mailman, but does have web interface, though clunky * Sympa - self-hosted & fully featured with web interface, but complex to install and not possible with shared hosting * Riseup - free hosted solution by net activists, uses Sympa mail list, has web interface * Dada Mail - self-hosted, good features though no reply via web interface
