Thanks for adding your interesting paper "Logic and Meaning in Conceptual Models: Implications for Information System Design‎". All pages should have a template to explain the copyright status, so you may wish to add {tl|PD-self}} or similar.--Longfellow (talk) 09:31, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. I have now attached the creative commons template.--Logicalgregory (talk) 15:19, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Academic paper[edit]

Hi Logicalgregory,

The remark about 2 people reviewing an article refers to our standard practice of uploading scans of the article and proofreading directly from that (e.g., Page:The Economic Journal Volume 1.djvu/185). There's a system in place that allows us to reliably transcribe works and retain the original source documents so anyone can go back and compare the text with the actual scans. The Academic Papers project was built with the proofreading system in mind, so since you didn't upload scans of the papers, you don't need to worry about navigating those different stages.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 13:44, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the information Zhaladshar, that makes it clear. --Logicalgregory (talk) 08:12, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

I've gone ahead and deleted the pages you indicated. However, File:SSM to Information Systems.pdf should be converted to Djvu before it gets used in the ProofreadPage system (djvu is a free format whereas pdf is proprietary). If you give me a couple days I can see if I can convert it to a nice djvu.
Now, when it comes to trying to do proofreading, you want to create an index of the same name as the file. For the example above, you would want to create Index:SSM to Information Systems.pdf. This then will allow you to edit each page in the document, convert it to text, and then use it on the actual article page itself.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 14:11, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the help Zhaladshar --Logicalgregory (talk) 15:14, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

I've uploaded the djvu at File:SSM to Information Systems.djvu. You need to indicate what the licensing for it is, though. To be able to start proofreading with it, create the page Index:SSM to Information Systems.djvu (for the "Pages" section, use the <pagelist /> command). Then you should be good to go.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 15:50, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
The OCR quality sucks on the djvu file, however. If you have a text copy as well, you might just want to copy paste them into proofreading system, rather than having the system automatically do OCR. Sorry I can't get the quality much better.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 16:01, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes the quality is bad. This is because the original was printed with a dot-matrix printer. In retrospect, it was probably not a good idea to try the scan/OCR route with this paper. However, I shall continue in order to familiarize myself with the procedure. Once again thanks. --Logicalgregory (talk) 05:02, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
