1. Manage Future Issues

The "Future Issues" tab consists of a single box that lists all of the issues you are currently planning. This box allows you to edit, preview, delete, see the number of items in the issue, and eventually publish the final version of your issue. To create issues to manage, select the blue "Create Issue" button in the upper right corner of this box.

2. Create New Issue

The window that pops up once you select "Create Issue" will request that you submit the new issue's data, including issue volume, number, year, and title, all of which can be enabled or disabled with the checkboxes above "Description". Be sure to keep your journal's issue naming and numbering policy consistent. Here, you also have the option of including a cover image for your issue and a short issue description. All of these can be altered at any time after you create the journal. Finally, you can give the issue an optional path name for its URL (By default, issues are given a URL based on their numeric ID, but you can change this here.).

3. Table of Contents

The first tab under the "Edit" option is a list of your Table of Contents in the order it will appear on your journal's website. Note that no page numbers are listed here- you can only change page numbers through each article's individual Submission Dashboard. Click on the small arrow to the left of the submission's title, select "Submission" to access to an article's dashboard or "Remove" to remove an article from the issue. You can also reorder articles by clicking "Order" in the upper right corner and then dragging items to their desired locations.

4. Issue Data

The second tab, "Issue Data", lists the basic metadata for your issue. This can include the issue volume, number, year, and title, all of which can be enabled or disabled with the four checkboxes above "Description". Be sure to keep your journal's issue naming and numbering policy consistent. You also have the option of providing a custom URL path name or including a cover image and a short description for your issue here.

The new pop-window allows you to upload a new galley for this issue, label the galley, and then give the galley a different URL path name. The language should always be set to English.
