Es hat lange gedauert, aber nun ist es absehbar, dass wir bald endlich einen neuen PubMan-Release einspielen können.
PubMan 7.1 wird mit einer aktuelleren Version des eSciDoc-Frameworks arbeiten. Deshalb werden sich einige (wenige) Namespaces ändern.

One thing I owe to the community since the PubMan Days is the explanation how publication lists that are exported by the Search&Export service can be sorted by more than one index field.
The use case for this is the integration of sorted publication lists into an institute’s homepage.

After eons of sleep, our PubMan Test Server finally is back and fully operational again.
This environment is supposed to be a sandbox where all interested people are welcome to take a closer look at the system and to try their hands at the various features and functionalities of PubMan.
As we have deployed the latest software version (6.2.8), the test server of course can also be used for demonstration or training activities.

Subscribing a feed is a very easy way to monitor changes in the repository like new publications were released or a new version of a publication was entered etc.
You can subscribe to a feed whenever you see the feed sign in your browser bar , here are some examples:

PubMan is now included in the CARPET catalogue of electronic publishing software tools and services.
To support the efficient use of electronic tools and services for scientific publishing, the CARPET Project is building an information platform including a catalogue, as well as an ePublishing community, to bring together developers, providers and users of ePublishing tools and services.
So, if this awoke your interest, feel free to visit the PubMan entry on CARPET, browse the catalogue for further useful tools or services, or even join the CARPET community!
Quality checks on metadata submissions – are they Conditio-sine-qua-non for providing open access to publications?
Or are they best offered as a service in the background – even after OA publication?

… did you know that the PubMan you know (http://pubman.mpdl.mpg.de/) is not the only one of its kind?
Currently the MPG PubMan has three more siblings:
National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Tsukuba, Japan
Geo-Forschungs-Zentrum (GFZ), Potsdam, Germany
PEER Project Installation (http://www.peerproject.eu/)
And we can benefit from all these other installations by
… getting feedback on experiences in using/installing PubMan
… hints on existing bugs
… ideas for new features
… and manpower for further development.
Additionally we get more and more feedback on our mailing lists from people who are currently installing PubMan for evaluation.
Please keep in mind always to use a browser version which is up-to-date. It’s release date should never date back more than 5 years (at least). Besides security aspects a current browser provides the ease of use modern web interfaces provide.
Due to the implementation of the underlying system older browsers may not support the browser back button properly (IE6) and Java Script is mandatory to run PubMan.
