Editing extra item in About the Journal

Postby philipm » Tue Jul 16, 2013 5:21 am

In Journal Setup, I used the feature to add an additional item (Add Item to Appear in "About the Journal"). Now I would like to change this text and there doesn't appear to be a user interface to do so as journal manager. It looks as if you can only add new items of this type, not see or alter existing ones in editing mode (though it is visible if I go to About the Journal under Policies in reader mode).

Am I missing something, or do I need to hack the underlying files to fix this?

Hi philipm,

To modify built-in menu items you'll need to change the system's templates. Some of them can be disabled via various setup options, but not all.

I'm not sure if I made the problem entirely clear. If you go to the about the journal page here and see Open Access Policy, that's an item I created using the feature to add an extra item while setting up the page. I can't find a user interface to edit this specific text no it's in place (I would like to separate out the information about a publication charge from the heading about open access policy).

Hi philipm,

There should be a place to add/modify custom About items in Journal Setup step 2.
