Deprecating journal sections

Postby lschiff » Tue Jul 24, 2012 3:29 pm

I've just received a request from one of our journal editors who wants to deprecate a journal section, but have it remain valid for past issues. As far as I can tell, there is currently no way to do this and I couldn't find any mention of this in this forum. Does anyone have a strategy for this issue?

Hello Lisa,
Please do not cross-post as it makes it harder to keep track of the evolution of questions.
This is rather simple.
All you need to do is set the section as restricted to Editors.
This way, authors won't be able to select that type of section.
