Description James MacGregor 2011-02-28 10:59:50 PST
The Editor's Review and Editing pages currently display all possible review and editing components, even if they aren't used by the journal. This can be distracting to long-term Editors, confusing to an Editorial team that has a high turnover rate (for example, law reviews), and superfluous for journals that complete the review/editorial process externally. 

While most processes are skippable, the journal Manager should be able to en/disable various components of the management interface, thereby toggling whether they display. Toggling review and editing components should be available in Journal Setup Steps 2 and 4, respectively. 

REVIEW: 

Some journals don't have a review process. In Journal Setup Step 2.2, the JM should be able to choose a third Review Process: "No Review Process." When this process is chosen, there should be no Review page for the Editor whatsoever -- initial vetting and acceptance of the submission can happen on the submission's Summary page. 

EDITING: 

The Copyediting, Layout Editing and Proofreading workflows (Journal Setup Steps 4.5, 4.6, 4.7) should all have an additional setup option: "This journal does not include a {copyediting/layout editing/proofreading} process." If the copyediting and proofreading processes are disabled, they should not appear in the Editing page. If the layout editing process is disabled, there should only be a field to upload a galley file.
