Code to convert to “Station Style?”

From: Jessel, Tanner – FS
Sent: Monday, October 31, 2016 11:42 AM
To: Gordon, Sean N -FS <seangordon@fs.fed.us>
Subject: RE: Code to convert to "Station Style?"

Hi Sean,

Yes, I will try it this week.

By the way,

Forest Service librarian Julie Blankenburg sent me this:

http://fsweb.wo.fs.fed.us/library/endnote.htm

Had you seen that before?

In fact there appears to be a “Guide for each reference type” (in progress) here:

http://fsweb.wo.fs.fed.us/library/endnote/endnote_fsexamples.pdf

Also of note: a “cite” option from SRS includes a BibTex, EndNote, and .ris file download, opening up ability to obtain “example” .ris files for each publication type – even the obscure ones –

http://srs.fs.fed.us/pubs/results-series.php

This is something I can volunteer to do to help test your style file.

A final note – here’s the Zotero style library if you had not already seen it:

https://www.zotero.org/styles

It’s linked to the citationstyles.org submission process I believe you’re already on to –linking here for my notes:

ISO 2709 copy for internal distribution?

Subject: ISO 2709 copy for internal distribution?

Hi,

I noticed the forest service library offers export for citations in “ISO 2709” format.

I was wondering if you happen to own a copy of this standard that you would be able to distribute internally for FS research?

Thanks,

Code to convert to “Station Style?”

From: Jessel, Tanner – FS

Subject: RE: Code to convert to "Station Style?"

Hi Gordon,

I would love to stop by on Friday.

Any time that works best for you, just let me know.

What you’ve done is the direction I was thinking about –

Since you’ve already created the style file, I think what remains for me is formally incorporating the “best practice” of using it into the author guidelines document I’m working on. People can suffer through manually formatting their citations to “Station Style” but it would be smarter / less work to use a citation management software with your added style file.

I’m happy to hear you know about Zotero in addition to Endnote – I used Zotero to organize WWETAC’s Fire Science and Social Science publications.

If that body of work would be handy for the NWFP literature database you’re working on, here is the link to the online citation library:

Thanks,

Tanner

Code to convert to “Station Style?”

Hi Sean,

I’m Tanner, working with the Communications & Applications Group as a post-masters’ research participant (intern).

I’ve been given an assignment to develop guidance for citations for a CAP group publication – “Author’s Guide.”

I gave an update on what I’m working on at our weekly meeting and I mentioned interest in word processor citation plug-ins for Zotero and EndNote.

Rhonda Mazza picked up on that and suggested I seek you out re: a project you worked on to easily convert citations to “Station Style.”

I’m very interested to incorporate this code into the Author’s Guide. I am all for computerized citation management.

Is your work on this something you can share via e-mail?

Thanks,

Tanner

Online UX/UI Tools

Subject: Online UX/UI Tools

Here is some info on how to do a card sorting experiment:

https://www.usability.gov/how-to-and-tools/methods/card-sorting.html

Typically you need special software do to it properly, but it can also be done with actual index cards on a table.

In my grad program I worked in a usability lab where we had different types of software to do this kind of research.

Here are some online ones:

http://measuringuserexperience.com/CardSorting/index.htm

It’s a little out-dated but it pointed me to this one:

https://www.optimalworkshop.com/101/card-sorting

There’s a free plan for “small projects”

Also has an IA tool:

https://www.optimalworkshop.com/a/11k5j10g/treejack/surveys

Definitely is a science to information architecture!

I just found this Sharepoint group:

https://ems-team.usda.gov/sites/fs-spug/SitePages/Member%20Join.aspx

It seems to be active:

https://ems-team.usda.gov/sites/fs-spug/community/SitePages/Community%20Home.aspx

There are “coaches” here:

https://ems-team.usda.gov/sites/fs-spug/SitePages/Coaches.aspx

Might be a good resource.

Q re: Author’s Guide

Hi Oscar,

Today I researched citation guides for the authors guide a bit. ( I actually found an interesting “manual for typists” in TreeSearch dating all the way back to 1947!)

I wondered if you could tell me if this document:

https://ems-team.usda.gov/sites/fs-rd-pnwcap/Shared%20Documents/authorsguide07.pdf

Is the current authors’ guide you’re working with?

Or is there a more recent one?

I noticed that this document (which I found in the Sharepoint “publishing” folder for the CAP group at <https://ems-team.usda.gov/sites/fs-rd-pnwcap/SitePages/publishing.aspx>) is from 2007 –

Is there a newer one, or are you in the process of updating this 10 year old Author’s guide?

Thanks,

Tanner

Program Web Content

Hi Tiffany,

After speaking with you I had new ideas about the lab content.

I also realized the new ideas could apply to the program content.

So, I have revised the program content with the new short headings:

About Us:

Who We Are

What We Do

How We Work

Research Areas:

Our Focus

Our Expertise

Our Value

I’m attaching the second version of EPF with this approach.

I deleted “Mission” as we discussed –

“Address” was not available to delete (it is required by the system to publish).

Thanks,

Tanner

Hi Tanner,

Let’s meet today to discuss about the web content that we received from the Programs, and how to proceed with requesting for lab content. Will 1pm for you ?
