Extending and customizing the VIVO functionality for listing publications in Weill-Cornell researcher profiles.
Eliza shows the way they have customized the publications list on the individual profile page. It required modifications to three template files, and the use of the TinySort plugin for JQuery. Some of their functions are based on data that they get from Scopus (number of citations), and they can create links to Scopus information because their library is a subscriber to Scopus.
Eiza will post the code on the Duraspace Wiki.
