A new issue of the UV4Plants Bulletin was published this week. As usual all contents is under open-access and PDF files available for individual articles and the whole issue. Back issues are available in the archive and all contents can be searched at our OJS server by authors and title as well as through Google Scholar which has already indexed this latest issue. All articles and the whole issue have been assigned permanent DOIs. Manuscript submissions for the next issue are warmly welcome. Submissions are subjected to peer-review. The journal is published only electronically and there are no charges for colour illustrations or open access.
Our web hosting provider has upgraded the server hardware, and this seems to have notably improved the response time of both of our sites, this web site and the UV4Plants Bulletin web site. Today I did software updates. At this web site, the social sharing buttons are now in a more visible floating bar on the left side of posts and pages. The changes at the Bulletin’s web site are more significant. I upgraded OJS (Open Journals System) to version 188.8.131.52, which seems to have solved the problem of icons not been always displayed. I enabled new features through plugins: 1) Social sharing buttons in individual article pages; 2) preview of PDFs in the web browser with option to download the file; 3) Hypothesis.is shared annotations support is enabled. The third item needs additional explanation. Hypothesis.is is a shared annotaion system based on open standards. Only a few days ago Highwire Press announced that it will adopt it for more than 3000 journals and eBooks. To use this system you will need to create an account at https://hypothes.is/ where you can also find information on aims and also use instructions.
