How to configure the article types?

Article types may be configured in the journal configuration, where article types are listed, and may be created, updated, or deleted:



Clicking on “Configure article type” will get you to the article type configuration, where the following options must be edited for any given article type:

  • Information required to the authors at submission (file types, information fields, questionnaire)

  • Due dates for authors and editors: this serve as a basis to compute status due dates and reminders

  • The technical check, if any. When activated, articles with this article type will benefit from a special workflow defined here:

  • The peer review: single/double blind, referee due dates, number of reports needed
