Author Role - Can't Edit Metadata

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Author Role - Can't Edit Metadata

I logged in as a journal manager. I then logged in as an author whose manuscript has been accepted, so it's in the editing stage. I wanted to correct an error in the abstract, but I was unable to do so.

After submission, does the author role permit updating of the article's metadata?

Hello thebigaym,

The author should be able to edit metadata at all times.
In the Editing stage, there should be a specific link for that purpose.
Otherwise, if you enter the Summary page, you should have access to that particular link as well.

I'm a Journal Manager, so I log in as the author of a manuscript.

From the editing stage, in the Copyediting and Proofreading sections of the page there is text labeled

Review Metadata

Each one is hyperlinked with the following URL

http://jima.imana.org/author/viewMetadata/8982

When I open that URL, I get this header and no opportunity to edit the Metadata.

Home > User > Author > Submissions > #8982 > Summary > View Metadata

which does

I'm a Journal Manager, so I log in as an Editor.

In the Editing tab, in the Copyediting section, there is

Review Metadata

hyperlinked to http://jima.imana.org/editor/submissionEditing/8982

which opens to

Home > User > Editor > Submissions > #8982 > Summary > Edit Metadata

which does allow me to edit.

From the Summary tab, there is text

Edit Metadata

hyperlinked to

http://jima.imana.org/editor/viewMetadata/8982

which opens

Home > User > Editor > Submissions > #8982 > Summary > Edit Metadata

which also allows me to edit.

Hi thebigaym,

That is as it should be -- authors cannot edit the metadata of published articles. Any changes to a submission's metadata after publication must be made by the editor, from the editor's interface.

Cheers,
James
