I downloaded the review copy to my desktop and did proofreading, copy editing, and layout on the desktop without going through the steps (roles) in OJS on-line.
I will make PDF's of the lay-out copy. I want to publish both the articles and separate abstracts as PDFs (no html)
1. Can I upload to publish the layout copy from my desktop without going through the "roles?"
2. If I bypass those intermediate steps will the crawlers still find the metadata?
3. How can I preview the entire issue before putting it on-line?
