1. Mockup of taxonomic name autocomplete

Description:

An auto-complete widget is attached to the taxonomic names input field. As the user types a name, the auto-complete list is populated with names from the controlled vocabulary (e.g., ITIS). By default 5 terms are displayed. What the user has typed is highlighted in the list. User can type non-preferred terms and preferred terms will be suggested. User can enter typographical errors and nearest terms are suggested. Auto-complete terms are displayed in the following order:
  • Exact match on preferred or alternate label with names appearing in the article metadata
  • Exact match on preferred or alternate label
  • Partial match on preferred or alternate label
  • Possible spelling corrections

Mockups

(Under consideration) Names appearing in the article metadata are shown first:
