ORCID in Crossref Deposits, Right-to-left text editing, Improved math editing, Rich Text Titles, "My Pubs" in Dashboard
PubPub now adds ORCIDs to Crossref deposits for all contributors on a Pub who have ORCID entered (either via their profile, if they have a user account, or via the Contributors interface if they don’t). After depositing the article, if the authors have configured Crossref ORCID auto-update, the Pub will automatically be added to their ORCID profile and the authors will be notified. Of course, authors can always choose to remove or hide Pubs they don’t want to display on their public profile.
For languages such as Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi that are written right-to-left, PubPub now offers a right-to-left (RTL) option in the editor toolbar, seen here:
This settings applies at the level of individual paragraphs. When it’s enabled, text alignment, selection, and cursor movement will work as expected for users of these languages. Here’s an example of RTL text in PubPub:
من از اون آسمون آبی میخوام
من از اون شبهای مهتابی میخوام
PubPub’s new math editing experience makes it easier to stay in the flow while drafting math-heavy Pubs. Now you can type some TeX between dollar signs
$ like this % and it’ll automatically be converted to
There’s better support for collaborative editing here, too. Others will now see your changes to math elements as you type.
You can now add bold and italic text to titles in PubPub using the usual keyboard shortcuts!
We’ll be adding support for more rich text content in titles soon.
We’ve added a new section of the Community and Collection overviews to show only Pubs that you are a Member of, or a contributor to:
This should make it easier to find the Pubs you care about most.
It can be difficult to keep a consistent look and feel across a PubPub Community, because settings like the header theme and citation style need to be configured with each new Pub. Starting soon, you’ll be able to set these values for an entire Community, with the option to override them individually for each Pub:
We’ll be bringing this feature to Collections soon after — and we’ll be using it as the basis for a more flexible and configurable PubPub going forward.
Whether you run a community or have read a few pubs, we'd like to understand who you are, how you value PubPub, and and how we can be a better partner to you.
