Editor Decision

Postby RobLynch » Tue Nov 20, 2007 8:19 pm

First attempt at putting an article through the OJS system. Trying to send an article from Editor Decision to Copyediting. Instructions say to use the Send button to select the copy of the article for the copyeditor. Nothing I do seems to activate the Send button, so I can go no further. What am I missing? We are using the latest version of OJS, Apache etc on a Windows server.

Hi RobLynch,

Have you recorded an "Accept" decision for the submission at the bottom of its Review page?

I'm working through this with Rob.
The Making a Decision flow seems a little strange.
The Review Version button was checked, but the Send button wasn't enabled.
I uploaded a completely different file using Browse and Upload, and then Send was enabled.
Surely Send should be enabled as long as any of the Review Version, Author Version, or Editor Version fields weren't null?
And shouldn't the Send button be at the end?
Many thanks for your help on all these questions. I hope we can contribute in return when we're up to speed!

Hi Owen & RobLynch,

See http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2887; the patch for this is at http://pkp.sfu.ca/cvs/cvsweb.cgi/ojs2/templates/sectionEditor/submission/editorDecision.tpl.diff?r1=1.30;r2=1.31.

Typically the review version is not used, as author information has been removed from it for the review process, but this patch will make it possible to use the review version anyway.

Any reference to how to patch php files? The syntax is a little confusing, and I can't Google any reference to it.

I presume that the @@ means patch sections, but I feel a little unsure about the rest.

Hi Owen,

You need to use the GNU patch tool to apply these patches. It should be installed on most *NIX systems, and it's also available for Windows, but you'll need to download it first.

Thanks. Patched it but got 2 failures out of 4 changes, so I think I'll wait till the next release (assuming it's going into the next release).

Many thanks for the nix tools suggestions.

Hi Owen,

Sounds good; alternately, it should be fairly easy to back-port this patch manually; lines beginning with "-" indicate removals, lines beginning with "+" indicate additions, and the rest is for context.
