It’s been a successful launch of the new version of the site. We’ve had lots of sign-ups to the Premium version and that includes a number of institutions – so, so far so good. Fortunately, we’ve had no ill-feeling expressed around the move to Freemium, I imagine most users understand the reasons. We have had lots of feedback which has started a mini-development cycle. So, things that we’re planning on doing in the near future include:
- Improved export meta-data. Currently we only include basic data such as title, publication and year. We’re now planning to extend that to include authors, volume, issue, page numbers and abstract.
- OpenAthens. We’re still exploring this but it looks like it’s a route that we need to go down. The only hesitation is the cost!
- Institutional pricing. Even though we planned it and spoke to a number of people I think the way we’ve packaged institutional subscriptions is overly complex and off-putting. So, we’re working hard to simplify this and we aim to roll out a new approach in the very near future.
