About the Copyediting Layout and ProofRead processes

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

About the Copyediting Layout and ProofRead processes

Can i just ignore them? Or can i just turn off this steps?
I was told that is possible to turn off this steps in the 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 inside OJS. But there is no button to turn it off like

    A Layout Editor will be assigned to prepare the HTML, PDF, etc., files for electronic publication.
    An Editor or Section Editor assigned to the submission will prepare the HTML, PDF, etc., files.

    A Proofreader will be assigned to check (along with the authors) the galleys prior to publication.
    An Editor or Section Editor assigned to the submission will check the galleys.

How can i skip this steps, i just want to to something like this

Author submits article
Editor choose section editor
Section Editor choose Reviewers
Section editor accept or decline due to the reviewers form response.
The file is sent directly to the issue
If the file does not match the journal rules send back to the author so he can make the final changes, then he send the correct article and the article can be set in the journal, this is kinda what happens in copyediting, but there is no layout editing neither proofreading. Its possible to skip this steps?

Hi Jojovem,

Yes, it's safe just to skip the steps. There isn't currently a way to push the reviewed version directly to galley -- you'll still have to upload a galley version to the Layout section for it to display online.

Cheers,
James

Hi chull,

Those steps are not required; you can simply ignore them if your workflow doesn't include them.
