      Hive literature collection: Volunteers needed     

Dear fellow bees,

more than a year ago Lego started to collect all articles ever mentioned in the Hive. What started as a big task turned into a unbelievable amount of literature. The collection has at the moment 5131 entries, some articles mentioned twice or more but they were collected nonetheless.

The aim of this compilation is one the one hand to avoid double post and on the other hand safing time and money for other bees by not going to library.

It seems to bee impossible to finish this task without help from other bees. Therefore Lego is looking for bees who can assist in this task. Any help is appreciated!



PS: At the moment the compilation is in an Excel-file. Is there any other way to share these data? The best would be a kind of HTML-page where you can sort and search as you want.

The tendency is to push it as far as you can

      The Hive literature collection     

Would it be of any help if I went through all my own posts and made a list of the references and gave it to you? If it was, what information would you like to have of those references?  Citation, authors, title, even abstract?

If more people did it, it might be of much help.

I don't have much to contribute except my offer to work at this project.  I don't keep much here with me, I do most of my work online.  However, it is only fitting that I should work on such an archive.  Lego, let me know what task you'd like me to begin with and I'll get crackin'.

Act quickly or not at all.

I've probably got nothing to contribute either except a shitload of time, so if i can help in any way just pm me and let me know what i can do.

      Sounds like something I've been thinking about

When it comes to providing server space as well as some web programming skills, my ears are burning (english idiom for "you're talking about me").

I've got right around ~1000 pdf files of my own, and have long been contemplating the best format for a database to hold them all.

Actually based on your initial post in this thread, you were somewhat unclear whether you are referring to just the references, or to the actual electronic copy of the document as well.  I would hope to make this collection include both an index of every reference as well as a link to the hardcopy of the reference...  In a way we would be creating our own version of Pubmed smile...

But then again, let us not forget this is what Rhodium's site has long been doing, however he's always been updating it by hand, which creates a horrible bottleneck of labour as our boss bee is quite a perfectionist (which is both a great trait and a hinderance).  I know for a fact that he's been dreaming of his own web based document manager complete with indexes (see Post 480391 (Rhodium: "Need CSS help with my page", The Server Room)), so I'm sure he would really appreciate it if our efforts were portable and eventually wound up on his site.

So Lego, give me a PM, and I will show you what I've been working on so far...  Definately read that thread as Rhodium is full of good ideas, having done the web archive thing for many years now.  Hopefully the streak of inspiration found in this thread will provide the solution Rhodium has been dreaming of without aversely affecting his site during development.

      The arcHIVE (TM)     

Perhaps the last post was a bit unclear as it was written in hurry.

Aim of this literature collection:
Provide a list with all relevant information (journal, year, volume, page, title/abstract, author, Hive post number) of ALL articles EVER mentioned in the Hive community

Why?
- To avoid double post --> save time
- Easily read articles on a different subjects without using TFSE (if you ever tried to search for an article e.g. JACS 67, 205 (1945) without knowing what was the entered by the bee who posted it knows the trouble, either lots of results or none) --> save time


It is not the aim to collect all fulltexts or clippings, only the 'Post No'.

The articles were found by either
- using TFSE (searching the string '1850' and increasing the number by one), hoping that at least the year of the article was mentioned
- reading the Hive
- using links provided in the posts found


The support Lego is looking for is quite simple (perhaps a great task for people on meth?! wink):
Get a list of threads which are not archived yet (PM to Lego), copy&paste all articles to an Excel-file with the same format.

Journal Year Vol Page No Title or Abstract Type Link Author/s


Putting all the abbreviations in the correct manner can bee done later.


This is a part of the list collected so far:
The full database can bee downloaded as a text file.

      some brainstorming     

I do as well keep my own little database of articles, complete with handwritten HTML GUI including structure drawings and a 'precursors'/'next step' section in each compound monograph, this way you can just click thru all the possible rxn steps and everything gets crossconnected. Would be nice to have such a feature in (an advanced version of) whatever  database we're talking about here.

I would also vote for not only making this a reference collection - but if we were to get all the hardcopies - there's quite a lot of work to do. Some of the most interesting articles are already in Rhodiums .pdf archive / the hive. I think many scanned articles can be found on the harddisks of various hive members. Which leads us to an estimated 4500 references still to be gotten. Well: here's the plan: if every member with access to a useable library takes 2-5 refs per week off the big list, it would take 25 members a year to get the task completed, more people, less time - simple.

      organization     

We need all the references listed out first.  How are you ever going to keep 25 people organized and in sync with each other without knowing which refs are needed, still needed etc.

The table format that Lego has looks great, but that's a hell of a lot of typing if you know what I mean.

Act quickly or not at all.

>How are you ever going to keep 25 people organized and in sync with each other without knowing which refs are needed, still needed etc.

I'm not. But here's how I imagine a working model:

Add one more field to the list: 'to be retrieved by' ; If I would volunteer to get 5 articles off the list, my name shows up in the respective 'to be retrieved by' cells. Then everybody knows they will soon be there and can pick one or more papers nobody is retrieving yet.

This would of course require some online database interface where I can tell the list I get this and that article. Maybe too idealistic and unrealistic, but if enough people like the thought, I'm sure it is possible.

      The aim is to make a quick index to Hive posts     

I think you have misunderstood the request. He does not want people to fetch articles, he want us to catalog the literature references made in all Hive posts to date:


It is not the aim to collect all fulltexts or clippings, only the 'Post No'.

The support Lego is looking for is quite simple (perhaps a great task for people on meth?!) wink
Get a list of threads which are not archived yet (PM to Lego), copy&paste all articles to an Excel-file with the same format.

Dear fellow bees!

The arcHIVE now contains 5598 entries.
Embezzler contributed 123 entries, Chimitant 119 entries, Kinetic sent 10 pages of entries and all got new work!
Thanks! cool

The arcHIVE needs more volunteers in order to accelerate the collection! Please send a PM to Lego!

      Proper layout of references     

You may call Lego a nerd but what about a common layout for articles?
You ask why? Because you easily find it and paste & copy it to the arcHIVE.

Lego suggests the Rhodium format:

Title
Author/s
Title & link, Journal, Year, Volume/Issue, starting page-endpage
DOI/Medline tag
[ upload ]if you are not Rhodium [ /upload]

Put the abstract here

like here: Post 514596 (Rhodium: "Many routes to 3,4,5-Trimethoxybenzaldehyde", Methods Discourse)
or here: Post 512438 (7is: "All the missing PBB articles part 1", General Discourse)

It is much better to read than e.g. Post 505367 (psyloxy: "H2O2 o-cresol to 2,5-dihydroxytoluene, 98%", Methods Discourse) (nothing personal Psyloxy, just the first post that was found)

Any suggestions/comments?

      Some more ideas...     

What a about a PM with all the relevant information (journal, year, issue/volume, page, title, author/s) to Lego when you post a new article?
At the moment Lego tries to collect all new articles but sometimes it is nearly impossible not to oversee anything (e.g. the 13th post in a stimulant thread).



Kinetic's 10 pages PDF contained 286 entries, now we have 5893 entries in the arcHIVE ®.

      reference markup tag ?     

Maybe this is just a stoned idea, but what about a reference tag in the markup ? This could have sub-tags for title, authors, journal, volume, issue, year, pages, abstract, DOI and an internal or external link to a .pdf or .djvu. Or there could be a simple version like [ref]JACS, 1939, 762[/ref], which would have better chances of getting used, while still beeing collectable with a script.

That way a list of articles could be auto generated about every week already in proper html formatting just to be copy'n'pasted to the existing database-file.

This would of course require everyone to use it, which might be problematic. I'm still interested in your opinions. Do you think using the scheme as in Post 517629 (Lego: "Proper layout of references", General Discourse) makes collecting refs easy enough ?

      It sounds like a good idea, it doesn't need to     

It sounds like a good idea, it doesn't need to be anything more than just a marker so that it is easily distiguishable with any search option or a script.

I don't see any way of getting people to actually use these though, as there are constantly new users and most people don't apparantly even read the rules on the first page or the faq. Even in the case of a script, if you wanted to really not overlook anything, somebody would probably have to double check the threads later on.

      Good idea & some updates     

Psyloxy: this markup tag is a good idea, as Jsorex mentioned it doesn't have to bee a special tag, just something like {article} which is not used otherwise. But many users just mention the reference, so they would hardly use the markup tag.
Post 528571 (Lilienthal: "That's a selective CB2 receptor ligand.", General Discourse).

At the moment Lego thinks simple collecting of the references is the thing to do.

      Who can convert a text file to HTML or better?     

Is there anybee who can convert a text-file (from an Excel file, each data field is separated) to a html-file or similiar code?

The new file should show the information (journal, year, etc.) and link to the Hive thread. If it is possible to change the sort sequence then it would bee perfect.


Please send a PM to Lego for the text-file.

      Use Excel, Dreamweaver and a search/replace     

In Excel you can save/export the document to HTML format, go to File > Save as Web Page and you'll get a nice-looking document, though somewhat bloated due to the inability of Microsoft products to produce standards-compliant HTML code.

In Dreamweaver MX there is a very useful tool in the menu Commands > Clean up Word HTML which will slash the size of the HTML file to less than half of its original size, while the looks of it still is indistinguishable from the original in a browser.

To make post numbers in table cells hyperlink to the Hive posts themselves, just check what the HTML table code look like, for example like this:
<td height=18 class=xl48>[485344]</td>

run a search/replace:

Change: <td height=18 class=xl48>[
Into: <td height=18 class=xl48><a href="www.the-hive.ws/forum/showflat.pl?Cat=&Number=

and

Change: ]</td> 
Into: ">[Link]</a></td>

and the result will be a cell containing the following code:

<td height=18 class=xl48><a href="www.the-hive.ws/forum/showflat.pl?Cat=&Number=485344">[Link]</a></td>



(http:// or https:// should be added in front of the www in the links above, but I couldn't do it above, or the html code had been auto-transformed into a link like this one: Post 485344 (Lego: "Reductive amination with Ti(iPrO)4/NaBH4", Novel Discourse))

      Hm....     

Perhaps Lego was a bit unclear.
How to convert the Excel-file to a html-file is not the problem but
1) it looks terrible
2) it would bee much better if it is 'interactive', e.g. change sort sequence...
3) a short programm which converts the text-file to a file which can bee shown by every browser (perhaps inside the Hive?) is thing Lego is looking for.

You need to export that Excel table into a database, which then can be searched and presented as dynamic content.

      Can I help?     

It's no secret how I feel about this matter.  I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't volunteer my services.  Is there anything I can do to help?

I also own 2 web sites, one has 80 MB free space, the other is totally empty, as I just purchased the domain yesterday.  If some storage space is required and we can keep the properties from displaying the address of my website somehow, I would be happy to host some data and maybe free up your server for internal hive buisness, private area storage, whatever.  It has Frontpage 2002 extensions in place already, if  that search engine/forum format intrests you guys and gals.  I have forgotten more about Frontpage and Photoshop than most people ever need to know, if those skills can be of use.

I also play a mean guitar, if you want to start am all-bee Rock band and just travel the world spreading nectar and honey (he-he)wink

I'm around a lot, let me know if I can give a hand

      Frontpage V.S. Dreamweaver     

Many think Dreamweaver is superior to Frontpage, but I disagree, especially if you are planning on using excel as the data collection base (both FP and excel are microsoft and come in the same bundle, and designed to be used together) As long as your web host uses frontpage extensions, uploading/downloading is a snap..faster that FTP IMHO, that is.  Plus I like the the Templet/setup Wizard that Frontpage uses.  It sets up the files and subfiles, page navigation, and even the web layout for you.  From what I have read in this thread, basicaly you would just have to cut and paste, cut and paste.

If you don't have Microsoft Office 2002 and would like me to stick it on a hidden page on one of my websites where you could download it from, I have no issue with that.  I'd let you do it via FTP, but I dont know you guys that well yet, and it's a long download (especially via dial-up) and I don't usually let the people I do know have access to my C: drive unattended. 

MS OFFICE includes Frontpage, excel, outlook, word and....hmmmm I forget what the 5th program is. After you D/L it, you can decide which ones to install or not, thus saving space by disgarding unused programs.

FP2002 is a WYSIWYG (wizzy-wig) or What You See Is What You Get layout format.  So as you design your sites, You see exactly what your visitors will see during the design phase. It is Photoshop friendly (I am not fond of the Fire-something editor that Dreamweaver uses) It comes with many site templets, and many more available on the web.

Dont get me wrong, Dreamweaver is a fine program.  For FTP submission and working directly on the site itself, it is a good platform.  I just like FP better, and it is mostly personal preference and minor feature differences that set them apart.

Happy Hunting
