STAR Version 5.10

STAR 5.10 was released on January 23, 2014 and includes a few changes.

  1. For both the Professional CV and the Promotion CV have had the Grants/Clinical Trials section changed to print in a more logical table format.  No fields have changed so there is no impact to end users for this change, however each record will print in a reorganized table format, allowing for longer text that is not limited by a narrow column.
  2. The PubMed import button was pulling in the long form of the Journal Name.  This has been corrected. 
    Example: Old journal name "JOGC: Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada"
    New journal name: "J Obstet Gynaecol Can". 
    This properly aligns with NLM formatting and how journal names should be captured.
  3. Include printing the DOI field in publications section of CV reports.
  4. Various other bug fixes with CV printing.
