November Update: Group Pages and Text Annotations

Posted by erik on Wed, Nov 13 2013

Hi Open Review Community,

we just released a new version that brings some smaller cosmetic changes and two great features: Group pages and inline-comments!

Group Pages:

Papers are now organized in groups and a list of groups can be found on the front page or here. All categories like Physics and Math are groups too. This will be the first step to being able to start your own groups in the future to which you can upload presentation, posters, etc. and invite your peers. Each group page contains an overview of the papers in that group, recent comments and comment statistics of its group members. Here is a screenshot of the Physics 95 group page:

Leave Annotation via Text Selection:

It is now very easy to make comments or search keywords by just selecting a word. A small menu will appear, from which you can choose to comment, search Google or Wikipedia right away. It is remarkably handy for looking up words quickly:

Inline Annotations

But you can still use the rectangle to leave comments.

Looking forward to your comments and leave some feedback!

Erik
