Yearly Archives: 2021
According to Google Scholar, MorphoSource was discussed or referenced 400+ times across the year 2021. This is a new yearly record for the repository, and increases our all-time number of citations to almost 1,300. Thank you very much to all of the data contributors and downloaders who have made this happen by finding MorphoSource a useful resource for their research and other scholarly efforts!
The MorphoSource team will be operating at reduced capacity over the upcoming end of year holiday period, from Monday, December 20th through Friday, December 31.
The MorphoSource team will be operating at reduced capacity over the upcoming US holiday weekend, from Thursday, November 25th through Sunday, November 28th.
For the foreseeable future, we will be running a schedule where the MorphoSource server will restart for very brief maintenance at 4AM US eastern time daily. This should not pose an issue to normal site usage. If you experience a download interruption related to this, remember that downloads can be resumed with no loss of progress due to interruption. If you are a data contributor uploading very large data files that take more than 24 continuous hours to upload, you could also consider taking advantage of our cloud upload features, where you can upload files directly from Box, Dropbox, or Google Drive.
Downloads of media from MorphoSource are now resumable! If you experience a network interruption while downloading media, you can resume your download using most major browsers like Chrome (which we tend to recommend users use with MorphoSource). Additionally, you can use a third-party download manager to improve download stability even further.
In an effort to better communicate with our user community, we have added a feature to the MorphoSource front page where you will see a list of recent updates from the admin team. These may introduce new features to the repository, share important information relating to server downtime, or notify users of tutorial or educational resources.
