2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OMP Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OMP Development subforum.

We've just started looking into OMP and I was wondering if someone could explain what the file name for a final document means.

Here's an example of a filename in the final folder of submission 1:


The last section is the date, but can someone explain waht 1-7-2-1-6 means?

Hi andybyers,

It's implemented in lib/pkp/classes/submission/SubmissionFile.inc.php in the _generateFileName() function:
  • Monograph ID
  • Genre ID
  • File ID
  • File revision
  • File stage (what part of the workflow the file is for)
  • Timestamp
