Objectives

Now that we have looked at the reviewers’ and section editor’s work of seeing the submission through peer review, we now return to the author’s perspective. This module will allow us to see the revision process through the eyes of the author.

We’ll finish by going back to the section editor’s point of view to see how she would accept the revised manuscript and send it to the copyediting stage.

Discussion

This part of the workflow can be challenging for new Authors. They won’t be as familiar with the OJS interface as the Editors are, so may get confused. Did you find anything in particular to be difficult in this lesson? Do you have any suggestions for making it clearer? Comments are most welcome!

  1. In my opinion:

    1) The author should be see first the “Upload Author Version” field
    2) And then see the icon “Notify Editor”

    Sounds logic?, isn’t it?

    Question: Why the email “Notify Editor” isn’t an email template?

    The process seems intuitive, but how about a video for authors to walk them through submission? I know the visual guide has answered my questions on the backend, so it would probably do the same for the public side.

  3. Seeing how the backend of OJS works is definitely helpful as an author. Great.

  4. I agree with Samuel Huang,it would be desirable if an advice for authors is included.
