Changing name of authors?

Postby tlove » Fri Nov 27, 2009 7:45 am

Is there a way to change the names of the authors on a submission?
The submission has been reviewed and I need to change the name of the single author and add a second author.
I can't see anything on the forum about this. Perhaps I'm overlooking something really obvious?
The site is using ocs-2.1.1-2.
Many thanks in advance for advice,
Terry

There are two ways to change the author information. The conference director can make the change or the author can make the change. Just depends on who is logged in. It seems to work in both the review list or the accepted list.

Where to find the information depends on who is logged in. See below.

If a submission is in review then click on the title. Click on Summary to open the page. Go to EDIT METADATA. There you can add an author and also alter the author order. After the changes, click on SAVE at the bottom.

If a submission has been accepted
For the author to make the change click on ARCHIVES to make the changes.
For the conference director to make the change click on ACCEPTED PAPERS.
In either case the steps above become the same.

I am running v 2.1.2 but I suspect that v 2.1.1.2 should work the same way.
