During 2006 and 2007 I was working on the web publishing platform for “Serbian Archives of Medicine” Journal of the Serbian Medical Society.

The requirement was to create a system that would accept the submitted articles, routing them through the complex system of administration, reviews, revisions, edits, and so on until they reach the publication.

On the other hand, there was a need to put the existing printed editions online as well.

I have presented to the revision board my analysis of the entities and processes, shown some ideas how to handle them in the system, they loved it, and I was hired to do the job.

After several iterations of architecture revisions, I have designed the database in Access (hosting limitation) which was later migrated to Microsoft SQL Server.

The web application was implemented in ASP.NET 1.1 WebForms, as it was the platform available for hosting at the time, using C# and NUnit for testing.

The design was aimed for clean overview and quick loading times, implemented in XHTML (as far as ASP.NET 1.1 WebForms allow), CSS, and enhanced a bit with JavaScript.

The document management system was a real challenge, since the client had a complex process, but in close cooperation it was implemented successfully.

The system was later a bit tailored and deployed to [permalink href=”247″]Serbian Dental Journal[/permalink] web site.
