Keywords for new submission

Postby dcolmena » Sat May 31, 2014 8:44 pm

Hello all,

When authors are creating a new submission, there are fields such as:
- title: For the title of the submission
- abstract: For the abstract of the submission

There is no field for the keywords. Uuuuummmm!!!!
Is there a way to have the authors to enter the keywords when submitting a
new submission????

Also, how can I view the keywords when visualizing the abstract by clicking the title of
the paper from the table of content????

Thank you for helping.

Hello all,

I found the solution. I am posting it here since it will be useful for you.

First, you must be the journal manager:
User Home -> Journal Manager

Then select:
Setup -> Submissions -> 3.4 For Authors to Index Their Work

Here, just make one single check in "Keywords (Provide examples of keywords or topics as a guide for authors)".
You do not need to feel the associated "Text Field". When an author will submit a new submission, he will have
to feel this text field with keywords separated by semi-colons from scratch in the corresponding form.

Then, go to the bottom of the page and click the "Save and Continue" button.

That is all folks!!!
