Hi there,

How to delete articles after they are accepted by the Editor?
We have try a couple of ways such as :

1. send the articles to scheduling and remove them there, however the article will go back to reviewing/editing?

2. create a new issue and send the article to new issue and then delele the the whole new issue. The same, the article will go back to reviewing/editing.

Hi Lawrence,

Generally speaking, it's good policy to hang on to submissions for record-keeping, even if they're never used; that's the purpose of the Archive. As Editor, you can send a submission to the Archive, regardless of its status -- unassigned, somewhere in the queue, or even published. Go to the submission's Summary page and find the "Archive Submission" link.

Once it's in the archive, if you're sure you want to delete the submission, you can do so by clicking the "Archives" link, finding the submission, and clicking the "Delete" button. This will permanently destroy all records and copies of the article.
