The development and deployment of PubMan, as any other eSciDoc solution, is based on a community-driven approach. Early Adopters and Pilot institutes from the MPG have been closely involved in software development and deployment concepts until the first milestone in May 2009: PubMan was deployed as productive system, including the basic functionalities, policies and support concepts.
The current PubMan User community is open to any interested/current user, who would like to be informed about ongoing development and projects around PubMan. You can join the community by subscribing to our pubman-users mailing list.
PubMan Early Adopters
Early Adopters are institutes, which have a vital interest in using the software for their purposes. They are also the first candidates for migration from the current MPG institutional repository eDoc and productive deployment.
The current Early Adopters are:
- Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics
- Cluster Golm:
- Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology
- Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry
Early Adopters can find further information here (access restricted page).
The PubMan pilot group serves as a kind of advisory board for PubMan.
The pilot group consists of the following institutes:
- MPI for Plasmaphysics
- MPI for Informatics
- MPI for Gravitational Physics
- MPI for molecular Genetics
- Fritz Haber Institute
- MPI for the Physics of Complex Systems
- MPI for Chemical Ecology
PubMan Pilots can find further information here (access restricted page).
MPG PubMan Communitiy Contacts
To find contact persons in the Pubman MPG community got to the following page.
- Linguistic Literature - a cooperative project which delivers personalized collections within the linguistic genre and enables access to it and referencing parts of fulltexts.
- Jus CMS - an extension of PubMan which requires discipline-specific aspects of data entry, depending on discipline-specific metadata and content types, as well as configurable citation styles based on juristic standards.
- Within the §137-L Project PubMan is used for long-term-archiving of publications between 1966 and 1994, for which the authors have granted "merge right" to the MPDL.
- At the National Institute for Material Sciences (NIMS), Japan PubMan is applied in the administration of researcher portfolios (Author ID), statistics and internationalization.
Other interested institutes
There are more and more interested institutions, which have test accounts for their institute on PubMan. If you also want to have a personalized user account, please contact the PubMan Support Team.
