Word Count not enforced when Editing Metadata

Postby agajania » Mon Jun 11, 2012 1:37 pm

In my testing of OCS, I have found that an author can set an Abstract Word Count Limit when Editing a Track. When an author saves a submission, if the number of words in the abstract is calculated to be above the limit then an error message is displayed. The author should revise the abstract until the length is less than the Abstract Word Count Limit and then it can be saved.

I have also found that after a submission is saved, the author can revise the Abstract by clicking on the Edit Metadata link. However, the Abstract Word Count Limit is no longer enforced when using Edit Metadata. The Author can save an Abstract which is longer than the Abstract Word Count Limit.
