- Confirmation and Next Steps
This is a step-by-step guide that walks through the process an author takes to submit a work for review and potential publication in your journal. This guide is provided so that you can understand how your various settings, particularly those edited in the Submission Guidelines section, are represented to your submitting authors. Authors will primarily reach this process through the "Submissions" page of your journal's homepage.
You can edit these Submission Requirements at the "Submission Preparation Checklist" section of the "Submissions" tab under "Workflow Settings", with instructional wiki page here. The Privacy Statement can also be edited on this "Submissions" page, with instructional wiki page here.
2. Upload Submission
Step two will ask your authors to submit any and all relevant materials, split by Artivcle Component. The defaults for these components are currently "Article Text" and "Other". New Components can be managed or added under the "Components" tab under "Workflow Settings", with instructional wiki page here. Authors will then review the materials they have submitted and be asked to confirm their submission before moving on to the next step.
3. Enter Metadata
This section of the submimsion process asks for standard metada, and a Title and Abstract are both required.
The confirmation page will secure the author's submission, making the submitted materials unable to edit until the later stages of the submission process. From this screen, the author can choose to submit a new work, review the work they just submitted, or go to the author dashboard.
5. Next Steps
Here is the author's dashboard. They will be unable to edit any of the files they submitted, but they will be able to edit and add discussions that will be visible to their article's editor, reviewer, and the journal manager. From this dashboard, they can access the various materials, reviews, and edits of their works.
