VCSCBi: Labnodes Releases Master

We have resolved 55 ticketed new features, tasks, bugs, or improvements. Significant improvements are listed below.

Highlights

ORCID in Labnodes

MMPC

All Labnodes users can now add their ORCID identifier to their Labnodes profile. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher. Add it today!

More connections

Discover connections

Keywords have long been associated with members, communities and resources. Supplementing our existing list of connected nodes, we are now using word "roots" - otherwise known as lexemes to INCREASE and further CONNECT people and their research!  Try it out today!

New Features

  • Add ORCID to your Labnodes profile - All Labnodes users can now add their ORCID identifier to their Labnodes profile. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.
  • Increased connection in network graphs – Changes were made to the keyword-based connectivity matching algorithm to utilize lexemes, which has greatly increased connectivity and still allows people to personalize their keywords.
  • Move shared contributions - We added the ability of collection owners to move (aside from share, copy and remove) their shared collections.

Improvements

  • Moved database to new server - We moved the Labnodes production database to new VUIT servers. Better uptime and performance!
  • Updated member API - The Labnodes API output now includes a member's 1) ResearcherID and 2) ORCID.
  • Reorganized member dashboard - The member dashboard has been re-organized to bring time-sensitive widgets to the top of the page.
  • Updated MMPC landing page - The MMPC has added another image to their landing page.
  • Increased collection content character limit - We increased the number of characters that can be added to a collection's "content" field.
  • Clipped long filenames - For those extra long file names, we are shortening how these are displayed to ensure that no overlaps occur in the user interface.
  • Updated DRTC landing page - The image ratio of the DRTC landing page images was changed.
  • Updated bacterial strain type - The ability to remove the "plasmid feature" has been added.
  • Updated the Labnodes feature community - We changed the community from VAPR to the DRTC in the drop-down menu.
  • Updated primer resource type - We implemented the "source" component as done in other resource types.
  • Added spinner when deleting collections - When deleting large collections, it can take minutes for the operation to complete. We have added a "spinner" graphical element to communicate that the operation is still in progress.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issues with community collections' resource sorting
  • Fixed non-working anchors on VCSCB Information page
