We are currently looking for volunteers to assist with the final phases of moving our newly digitized journal archive content online using our journal management system. Much of our archive material has already been made available open access on our journal site (http://journal.entsocbc.ca) and we aim to have the remainder completed in the coming months. Our goal is to have all 109 volumes, plus occasional papers, supplementary reports, and the Quarterly Bulletins will be made freely available.

This whole process is fairly straight forward, and the most time-consuming part of this process has largely been completed: making sure that the metadata (author, year, page numbers, title, abstract, etc.) for each article are correct before importing the PDFs to the journal site. If you are proficient with basic computer shortcuts (ctrl-c, ctrl-v to copy and paste; ctrl-f and ctrl-h to find and find&replace) then it doesn't actually take too long to get through a bunch of articles. The Society is able to offer an honorarium for volunteers.

Please contact Alex Chubaty (webmaster@entsocbc.ca) if you are interested in contributing time towards this project.
