Welcome to the development root for the Dissemin platform.
We have a few important satellite tasks that can be taken care of without exploring Dissemin's code. If you want to get started, they are probably a better choice.
If you want to use or help us build Dissemin proper, though, you will need access to an instance to hack around. Skip the boring installation steps, just use the VM!
- #openaccess IRC channel on irc.ulminfo.fr
- via the GitHub issues
Crawling: expand the sources of full texts dissemin has access to.
Accessibility of cited papers: instead of providing lists of papers authored by given researchers, compute the availability of references of a given paper.
Adding links to the full text of references on Wikipedia: create a Wikipedia bot that adds links to open repositories.
Price on paywalls: Find a way to compute, for most DOIs, the price on the paywall (if there is one). This would enable us to tell users things like "Readers would need to pay 157 USD to access all your papers."
