I have removed an article by mistake!!!

Postby cumhuriyet » Mon Feb 15, 2010 6:08 am

Dear Friends

We have a journal entitled "Cumhuriyet Medical Journal" in OJS. We published four volumes of our journal. I have removed an article in the last volume by mistake.How can I re-add (or re-load) that article in the same volume of our journal? Could you help me? I am waiting for your reply within shortest possible time.

Sincerely yours

Melih Akyol

Hello Melih,

I'm not an expert in this in any way (I learn by trial and error!), but if you just deleted the article from the issue (e.g. from the Table of Contents, perhaps), I believe you can re-upload the article because the content (e.g. metadata, reviews, etc) will still exist in the archives. My suggestion is the following:
1. Use the Editor role, and select 'Archives'.
2. Find the article that you deleted (all the articles you have published or processed should be listed). Clicking on the article in archives should let you access all the normal pages associated with processing an article (i.e. the Summary, Review, Editing, etc pages).
3. Go to the Editing page and upload the article again (to Galley Proofs, I believe) and re-assign it to the Volume/Issue that you want, as you normally would have when you originally published the article.

Hopefully this works. I have gone through this process when I uploaded and published an article, and then realized there was a (minor) typo. I deleted it,and then replaced the original article with a cleaned-up version.
