Objectives

In this module we’ll get a feel for how the layout editor interacts with the section editor and uploads the galley files of a submission in OJS.

In keeping with the course’s focus on the big picture of publishing a journal issue, we’ll leave aside some of the details of how the layout editor does his work. We won’t go into things like attaching a template to a submission or creating links to references.

Instead, we’ll use this lesson to solidify our understanding of how the editorial team members interact with each other via OJS and help move the submission through the publication process.

This module has only provided a brief introduction to layout editing in OJS. Are there any aspects of it you’d like to see covered in more detail, perhaps as part of an Advanced OJS course?

    Hi,

    I am a beginner of this system, and just found I cannot upload the pdf file in layout editing step. When I chose to upload a pdf file to the galley, the title of the “edit a layout galley” is untitled, and there is no information on the file name and the original file name, and the file size is B. I cannot figure out what the problem is. Could anyone please help me?
