You find the links to the two voting files + instructions though http://vph-ald.com/VPHAopenfiles.html (at the moment under the "under construction" heading) and in the bullets below. The early adopters can make their first vote already; you have time to update and change your vote until June 15th. At the moment, of the two options, only "option b" is open, that is, voting through the VPHA-voting-ENTRY-file.
We have made the very first test with the system; however, it is possible that the voting system is not completely final yet --- that is why this is a message for the "early adopters". Feedback is appreciated when you have proposals how to make the system easier to use for voters and at the same time not make it more laborious for the coordination. The instructions copied below are current instructions and there may be small changes coming still (the linked files will always contain the most up-to-date information).
VPHA voting rules related to VPHA-voting-file
- Each VPHA co-author may vote
- If you want to vote but are not yet a VPHA co-author, please first become a co-author by leaving at least one comment in ALD-history-evolving-file.
Voting is open until June 15, 2016. Until then, one can update and modify one’s own vote.
Practical aspects: how to vote?
- There are two ways to vote:
a. Via email: All VPHA co-authors will receive by email a spreadsheet with a column with the article info and an empty column to add their name and vote
b. Via the VPHA-voting-ENTRY-file, open to view and edit by anyone
- Label a voting column with _your name_ and enter the number of points you wish to give to the rows of the publications (the codes work as unique identifiers)
Once completed, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org either (a) with the filled spreadsheet attached or (b) with a note that you have entered your info VPHA-voting-ENTRY-file. We will copy-paste the info to VPHA-voting-file.
