Hello! I am working with a journal that has four different sections. For various reasons, the editorial team wants to rename one of the sections from “Research Articles” to “Articles” and reassign all of the articles in a specific issue from the other sections to the newly renamed “Articles” section. However, after the issue is published, they want to change the name of the “Articles” section back to “Research Articles,” so that the journal’s submission and publishing workflows will return to their original configuration (i.e., future authors will be able to submit to the “Research Articles” section, and future issues will include a “Research Articles” section).
So, my question: is this possible to do in OJS 220.127.116.11? I know that I can rename the section (under Settings > Journal > Sections), and I also suspect that it would be straightforward to reassign the articles to the renamed section (under Publication > Issue > Section). That said, I don’t know what implications that would have for future issues. Once the issue with the “Articles” section is published, can I then go back to the journal settings, change the name of that section to “Research Articles”, and have that change only affect future submissions and issues (and not affect the issue that was published with the “Articles” section)?
Apologies if this question is convoluted - I did my best to describe it but would be happy to provide more information if that’s helpful. I’d also greatly appreciate any advice you all might have for me. I searched the OJS documentation and also this forum but couldn’t seem to find this use case mentioned anywhere.
