OMP: can book reviews be managed and exposed?

Describe the problem you would like to solve
In OMP book revies are not managed at all

Describe the solution you’d like
For each book (maybe chapter too) should be possible to manage book reviews, publishing them in the book page e.g. like this https://www.uclpress.co.uk/collections/ro_homepage_products/products/187257

Who is asking for this feature?
Press managers, Press editors, Authors

Additional information
We think that reviews are an important book promotion and should be managed separately

Hi @bolelligallevi,

To be clear: you’re looking to display reviews publicly on your OMP site alongside the books?

Hi @rcgillis, yes we world like to do that.
Right now, we are testing the possibility to add them at the end of the abstract field, big as temporary solution.

Hi @bolelligallevi,

Interesting - thanks for sharing. To my knowledge this doesn’t exist in OMP, but it’s possible that others may be interested/working on it too. Anything you can share on current work/code towards this would be helpful. Typically, the way this type of thing would be handled would likely be in the form of a plugin. I’ve switched this post to a “Feature request” category. I would ask, however, if you could rephrase your feature request using our standard headings/feature request template (if you start a new post and use the feature request template it should appear. Otherwise, could you reformat your request using the headings such as those found here; Improvement of PKP's OJS installation statistics site (https://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/stats/)

P.S. I would recommend updating your OMP Instance as well, as 3.1 is out-of-date and not supported. Working from a more updated codebase would help in this situation as well.
