CRediT Integration with OJS

I am curious to see if there has been any further movement or interest in a way to integrate the CRediT project with OJS, mentioned here: ORCID CreDiT project implemenation

We think this would be a useful feature to include with articles.

Further information on CRediT: http://docs.casrai.org/CRediT#Quick_Links

Thank you,

Amanda

P.S. I don’t know if it matters to the topic, but we’re running OJS 3.1.

I am also interested in this, in fact I’ve organized a conference session in a few weeks to push for publishers to adopt CReDIT. Can anyone tell me how the attendees and I might be able to help? Most will not be real programmers, but some might.

I would also be very interested in conversations and developments about OJS and CRediT (Contributor Roles Taxonomy). It seems like this could fit nicely within OJS3–especially since adding contributors to a a paper already requires some distinction (currently a selection between author or translator).

I am also interested in this work. There is a Feature Request in GitHub which also discusses this.
https://github.com/pkp/pkp-lib/issues/857

Feel free to comment here or on that GitHub issue with your specific use-cases. If we get a clearly defined specification and significant community interest around this, this helps with prioritizing implementation.

One of the current blockers for me is thinking about how the CRediT contributor roles map (or don’t) upon other taxonomies, such as the Crossref contributor_role (author, editor, chair, translator), or the ORCID Contributors (Author, Assignee, Editor, Chair or translator, Co-investigator, Co-inventor, Graduate student, Other inventor, Principal investigator, Postdoctoral researcher, Support staff), and how (and where) within the software we provide a flexible mapping from one taxonomy to another. Which schema(s) do we expose to the end-user, and how do we translate from one schema to the others (if we do)?

Even more relevant because CRediT should make it into CrossRef’s schema.

Are there any recent developments/outcomes of a CRediT integration into OJS?
I’m very interested in using such a plugin.

Hi @Sleipnir,

No, unfortunately there hasn’t been any progress. This is on our roadmap, but is not yet scheduled for development.

Upvoting. That would be a really important feature.

… and now CRediT was effectively incorporated in ORCID:
