potential authors or articles

Postby Matt Ferranto » Sun Jul 15, 2007 6:50 pm

Is there a way for editors to create a list of potential articles or authors, sort of a "pre-publication" list of possible subjects?

We're trying to create a list of books to review and potential reviewers. It would be great if multiple editors could simply upload their lists to a single file.

One way, which is sort of clunky, is for editors to log in as authors and then enter each book/reviewer as an individual submission. We can create a section for them to put the submissions.

If there's a more streamlined or efficient way of doing this, please do tell.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi Matt,

Some users have installed additional programs to accompany OJS and manage some of the details like those you discuss. For example, a forum like phpBB or a wiki like Mediawiki would make a good accompanying space to store additional content and could include an Editors' section where planning for forthcoming issues could be conducted. Otherwise, a work-around like the one you suggest is probably best.
