Hi,

I can add a contributor in management -> catalog -> entry -> monograph -> add contributor. But I cannot select people already registered.

People I add to the contributors list appear in the database (authors, author_settings), how can I make sure that people registered don't appear twice in the database?


best,
Carola

Hi Carola,

That's correct -- authors and users are different concepts. When you use your user account to submit a monograph, a first author for it is automatically pre-populated using your account. You can add additional authors to it, but that won't create user accounts for those individuals. It's possible to involve additional users by bringing them in using the Participants drop-down on the right-hand side of the Editor's workflow pages.

This was done for many reasons, but mostly because we didn't want user profile changes (name changes etc.) to affect already-published content.

Hi again,

when I go to management -> catalog -> entry -> monograph I cannot edit the items in the list of contributors (pencil-symbol to the left is missing). When I first wanted to post that issue here, the pencil-symbols suddenly appeared, but now it's gone again, I didn't do anything special. We have this problem in our online-version as well. We cannot delete contributors from the list and we cannot change their bio-statement. Do you have an idea what causes that strange behavior?

best,
Carola

Hi Carola,

Is your user assigned (using the Participants drop-down) to the submission, e.g. as Editor? Once a submission has been completed (by the author), only users assigned in the manager, series editor, or assistant (e.g. Copyeditor) categories can edit the author list.

Hi Alec,

thank you!

I guess I must have been logged in as the Press Editor when I could edit the list. Now I was logged in as Admin and Press Manager and was only assigned to the submission as an author. Now that I am back to Press Editor it works!

best,
CArola
