Looking at https://help.escholarship.org/support/discussions/topics/9000037642 , it seems that some of these features I am about to mention have been incorporated or will be?
Journals search: https://escholarship.org/journals. I’d like to find publications with a biomedical scope (and other discipline related). It would be useful to include an advanced search or faceting to search on different faculty like subject, status (undergraduate vs faculty), etc.
I understand Altmetrics will be featured on the journals? Will other information such as where journals are idexed, editorial board info, and other quality/impact markers per DOAJ, OASPA, COPE criteria https://oaspa.org/principles-of-transparency-and-best-practice-in-scholarly-publishing-2/ ?
Also, it appears that the recent articles on this page https://escholarship.org/journals are not from the journals published through eScholarship which is a little confusing.
To answer your questions:
- Advanced search is, indeed, coming. We hope to have that feature available by year's end.
- AltMetric badges are available only for journals that have an active AltMetric license. We have also built in a DOAJ Seal badge, which can be activated by alerting us that a journal has met DOAJ requirements for the seal. Other information about the journal is maintained by each journal's editorial team using our new Site Configuration Tool.
- Good catch on the 'recent articles' on our Browse Journals page. We'll be re-working that right sidebar in the near future to feature journal covers for recently updated issues.
Thanks! In the meantime, is there a way to find UC published journals with biomed or chemistry scope? I have a researcher on campus who would like to test an application that determines rigor in the methods section.
