Thanks for the suggestion Ian.

The concept of a "papers" section already exists on sasCommunity.org - a category called Presentations. There is a link to Presentations along the left hand side panel. It will bring you to:

http://www.sascommunity.org/wiki/Category:Presentations

To date there are not that many papers/presentations there. As we get more contributions we can evolve the categories and subcategories to reflect the content. We can also perhaps take advantage of some new features in the underlying MediaWiki software to do a better job of organizing such categories. Researching that is on the wishlist.

Regards, donh

Don, Lex,

I would suggest having a section Papers at www.sascommunity.org. Anyone could post paper or link to paper with key words. Then Lex could add search facility of entire www.sascommunity.org and a special one to the Papers section.

If author wants to modify a proceeding paper, he would send it to the community Papers site. Anyone who wanted to check a paper for updates and fixes could then check to see if there is a later version at Papers.

The advantage of this recommendation is that the searching activity is still located in one place convenient to the user. The paper author has the responsibility to maintain the integrity of his contribution. The user has the knowledge that this can more than a quick entry made at the site. When the paper is in a PDF format, one cannot modify it, yet one can add discussion about the paper.

One of the advantages of doing this on the sasCommunity.org site is that the author will likely be watching the pages/files. So if someone else updates them incorrectly, when they receive the email notification that the file or page was changed they can check out the changes and roll them back if needed. That is a built-in feature of the MediaWiki software that sasCommunity.org (and Wikipedia) are built on top of.

The same applies to any change someone makes to an article or file. The changes can be rolled back or corrected as needed.

Regards, donh
