RS_Server is the server-side application which has the task to collect and aggregate the ratings given by readers and to use the Readersourcing models to compute quality scores for readers and publications. An instance of RS_Server is deployed along one of RS_PDF. Then, there are up to n different browsers along with their end-users, which communicate with the server-side application itself; each of them is characterized by an instance of RS_Rate. This setup means that every interaction between readers and server can be carried out through clients installed on readers' browsers or by using the stand-alone web interface provided by RS_Server and these clients have to handle the registration and authentication of readers, the rating action and the download action of link-annotated publications.
