copyedit upload function

Postby Ashford » Mon Apr 24, 2006 5:47 pm

OJS in an hour states once the copyeditor has edited the submission, the changed document uploaded into the system by using the 'upload' tool.

I have downloaded a submission, made my alterations and saved them onto my computer.

I have used the "browse" tool to locate the altered submission, and clicked the upload button, but the altered version of the submission doesn't applear to be uploaded - there is no link to it on the OJS site.

Is this a bug, or am I doing something incorrectly. Any advice appreciated.

Hi Ashford,

When you upload a copyediting version, it'll replace the old version (although the old version is still kept for records). The filename you see on the screen won't be the same as the file you uploaded; it'll look like "2-9117-2-CE.pdf" or something similar. If you're not sure if the upload worked, open the copyediting file to make sure it's the right one.

If it's not, you'll have to examine the server; it's possible that there are file permissions problems, for example, that need to be corrected.
