Module 21 is relatively brief, but it isolates a key step in the editorial process.
In this module, we look at the final responsibility of the section editor, scheduling the submission. It’s important to note that, like the decision whether to publish the submission, this task will often reflect a shared decision by the editor and section editor.
In this module we’ll also see how the scheduling feature of OJS allows the editor and section editor to manage the publication of articles incrementally as each article passes through the editing process, rather than in one batch, as is required when publishing a print journal.
For this module, login as the Editor and go to the Editing page for the submission. There you will see the scheduling option. Go ahead and pick an issue. If you haven’t created an issue yet, you’ll need to do that first. Do you remember how to do that?
