Show Supplementary files Title for Reviewers

Postby strup » Mon Apr 08, 2013 3:10 am

Hello to everyone,
first let me say great job everyone.

We use supplementary files as repository for additional files, tables, figures, ... to an article. These can be rather large due to high resolution images, ... so they cannot be part of article(we need them for printed version). My problem is that I want reviewers to be able to see Title of supplementary files as OJS changes the filename and reviewers have great difficulty to know which picture is in the article while filename is altered and Title is not showing.

Is there simple solution to this request?

Thank you and keep on good work,

As far as I know, there isn't a way to prevent OJS from renaming the file that are uploaded. The title of the file is included in the metadata and the title entered is retained there. However, as far as I know the only option for presenting supplementary files to reviewers is to do so WITHOUT access to the metadata. The only solution I can think of would be to include whatever information is necessary in the actual file itself.

All best,
Vanessa Gabler

Hi strup,

If you're publishing HTML articles, note that you can include links to your supplementary files using URLs like "ojs://a/b" where "a" is the ID of the article and "b" is the ID of the supplementary files (seen in their respective URLs).
