Copyeditor Homepage

Postby trudie » Tue Nov 27, 2007 5:24 am

Dear All [Alec],

OJS 2.1.1 is our baseline - no alterations [extra coding] have been added or made [except the one or two buggies]

Difficulty being experienced:
Copyeditor homepage in the 'ACTIVE' list - a very interesting phenomena is taking place.

The list appears: ID | MM-DD |Assign | Sec | Authors | Title | Status which is normal...

BUT: Under Status, the Steps are wrongly indicated to the Copyeditor.

The initial Step 1, is were the Editor request the copyeditors services - that is fine [no problem here]...but when the Copyeditor completes step 1 [whereby the automatic email goes to the author] the Status at the copyeditor end - shows Step 3 and not Step 2. [The author have not completed / or is still underway with the article]

This is causing [as can believed] a lot of frustration for the copyeditor . Is their a matter of rectifying this matter? Or is this normal behaviour [hope not] :D

Awaiting patiently for your response.

Kind Regards,
Trudie

Hi Trudie,

Does the date display on the Copyeditor's page match the date display on the Editor's Copyediting section on the submission's Editing page?

Hi Alec,

Happy to read your response.

Well, basically yes. The dates corresponds, for instance the date it was 'requested' and 'the date underway' also, the 'date completed'

This is what the editor see:

Before she goes into the title...on her homepage. This is the same article.

My questions is whether it shouldn't indicated Step 2? Due to the fact that its in Step 2?

Thank you for all your help! Always such a pleasure to "speak"/correspond with you!

Sincerest wishes,
Trudie

Hi Trudie,

The problem is that this submission, being in step 2, should not be appearing in the Copyeditor's "Active" list. There's a patch for this at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3167 that will cause it to move to the Archive list for the duration of step 2, then return to Active when step 3 begins. (Try applying the patch with --dry-run first, as it's been generated against the CVS version of OJS and may not apply cleanly to prior versions.)
