going mad for editing process

Postby nelson » Fri Feb 23, 2007 9:13 am

editing process is driving me crazy, one of reviews that I'm going to manage has a very simple structure, one Director/Editor and 3 Section Editor.

They don't use peer rewieving.

Authors keep contact with them by phone o private email, they send the articles but often they meet and give articles by hand (sometimes also hand-writed), and the staff makes the pdf without a specific Layer Editor.

So the Director / Editor would like to submit and store articles in a pair of click.

But we do not understand how to simplify the process, it seems that for each article we have to do a lot of fake steps assuming each time different indentities: author, section editor, layer editor, editor...
.... and often, a the end, we just see the abstract and just in two cases we found the PDF published, but we made so much attempts that we cannot remember how we arrived to it.

Does someone has suggestions?

btw: Should be nice a plug-in (allowed only for the Chief Editor) that should be called: "Publish in One Click".
