Comment from Len Shaffrey (UREAD):
Responsible parties need better wording or instruction because there is some confusion over specific difference between 'lead author' and 'contact'.

I entered the following post on the questionnaire FAQ

What is the difference between lead author and contact?

In the questionnaire we ask you for information about 3 kinds of responsible parties:

  • Contact: A person who completes a particular page of the questionnaire.
  • Lead Author: The person who will be associated with the metadata record.
  • Funder: The organisation who provides the funding to run the simulations.

We expect that the questionnaire will be completed by many different people. The lead author is the person who coordinates the effort to complete the questionnaire and will be associated with the metadata record that appears alongside the data in the ESG portal. A contact is an individual who completes a particular page of the questionnaire. The lead author and contact can be the same person!

  • Owner changed from charlotte to gerry
  • Status changed from assigned to new

At  telco64 we decided that "Lead Author" will be renamed "Principle Investigator" to emphasise the role of this responsible party as the person with scientific responsibility.

I am handing this ticket over to Gerry to make the Lead Author change.

Hi Gerry, is it possible to add these definitions to the Responsible Parties page:

  • Contact: The person who completes a particular page of the questionnaire.
  • Principle Investigator: The person with scientific responsibility.
  • Funder: The organisation who provides the funding.

Charlotte, I've made this change but haven't committed it because I think it needs to be improved layout-wise (see attached image). I'll look at this again this evening (am off to get the train now). If you have any thoughts on how best to lay out this change, let me know.

Hmmm, I see what you mean.

Can we make these definitions appear like a tool tip instead? So they pop up when the mouse hover's over the word next to the text box.
