We are looking for somebody for a site overhaul of [url removed, login to view] - we need a totally new, fresh, web 2.0 inspired design and new information architecture, need to build user accounts and a user management system on top of this with a social networking functionality (possibly Elgg, SocialEngine, BuddyPress) so that users can see what they have webcited in the past, can annotate and share those webcitations, and connect to those with similar research interests, RSS feeds, as well as a CMS to enable easy content management for site admins.
Some improvements on the back-end functionality is also desirable (integration of bibutils, improving the API/Web Service/XML functionality)
The site is currently in php, though we have some abandoned Ruby/Rails code.
Bidders should look at the site very carefully, and send a PMB, suggesting features, improvements and milestones IN DETAIL, with a fixed price for each milestone. Please enter the bid for the first milestone.
All other bids, including those just sending a generic portfolio/references/company blurb WILL BE IGNORED.
There are plenty of contractors out there who COULD do this, we need a clear indication that YOU can do it, and that you thought this through carefully.
