This site will enable academics and professionals the ability to submit freely available abstracts from peer-reviewed journals and have the community rate them. Higher rated abstracts will move to the top. It will also enable registered users the ability to find similar papers based on the ratings from users most similar to them (this is based on the open source ï¿½slope one algorithmï¿½ which is currently available in java, php, and as a drupal 4.7 module.) An example would be the Amazon system or Netflix systems, e.g. ï¿½customers who liked your book also liked this bookï¿½ï¿½ Lastly, there we a component built that serves up a "degrees of separation" list (see below under Required Features).
We would like a voting system similar to [url removed, login to view], but with a ten star rating system rather than points. Therefore, you will need to visit this URL ([url removed, login to view]) and register and submit a sample story in order to understand what is being asked. As Joomla! will be the cms, this project should be a component that can be installed into Joomla. It must be the frontpage. We will provide a mockup jpeg image of what the frontpage should look like, including the menu links along with the site header/logo in PDF and gif formats. A limited basic module of the voting system may be licensed by both you the bidder and we the buyer to defray bidding costs. We retain full rights to the themed template, which may not be licensed by you the bidder at any time.
The module/component that may be licensed by you the bidder will be modified by removing the journal volume information, authors, and abstract and making it more general to any news found on the open Internet. The content recognition engine, though open source, must NOT be included in the licensed module version of the voting system. The degrees of separation engine would not be licensible at this time, but may at a later date.
Again, a new CMS is not needed, as it will be Joomla based.
