Uploading a Revised Paper - No confirmation

Postby janer » Tue Sep 28, 2010 8:45 am

Hi there,

I wonder if anybody could add a bit of extra reassurance for authors please? When they upload their paper initially, a final screen assures them that the upload was completed successfully. However, when they upload a revised paper, nothing happens after they click the Upload button.

As Journal Manager, I have just received my second query this month, from an Author seeking reassurance that their paper was logged safely back into the system - the Editors have been away, so after a day or two of silence, authors start to worry that they may not have done something crucial!

I think this would be a really helpful addition to a future OJS version.

Best wishes
