When an author makes a submission, they can upload multiple files. Each of these files is considered a Component of the submission. Here, you can manage and create components that will make submission more structured for your authors.
The only box available on this page, "Article Components", lists your current components visible to submitting authors. The default settings include two components, "Article Text" and "Other". If you ever wish to restore your components to these two components, simply select "Restore defaults" in the upper right corner of the box. You can edit or delete components by selecting the small arrow to the right of the component's name. The option to submit components will appear to the author in the same list you have in this box; to reorder, select "Order" in the upper right corner of the box and drag components into the desired positions. Finally, if you want to further structure your submission process, select "Add Component".
After selecting "Add Component" from the upper right corner of the "Article Components" box, you will be required to enter a name for your new component. Common components include images, multimedia, or transcripts- any consistent portion of your journal's articles that you do not want included in the Article Text. You can further specify your component under "Options", allowing the files to be sorted by chapter, or marking files as either dependent or supplementary. To finish adding a component, you will categorize the component type as a Document, Artwork, or Supplementary Content.
