Filename rewrite convention

What do the filenames mean in OJS. Some of it is obvious. For example, this file 304-1090-1-RV.docx - I believe the first number is the submission ID the RV must stand for Review File and I imagine the -1- is the first version. Where does the 1090 come from?

Are these filename conventions documented anywhere. I’d like to be able to explain this to editors.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @macdonaj,

The best place to look at is the code:

Basically it’s a combination of:

1 - Article internal ID;
2 - Article file internal ID;
3 - Article file revision;
4 - The abbreviation of the article file stage;
5 - The original file extension;
