How can I send galley proof to the author to check before scheduling it for publishing in OJS 3.0?


I saw the webinar on OJS 3.0. Kevin explained how after uploading the galley proof, the editor can schedule the publication. My question is, how can I send the proof to the author and can have discussions regarding the corrections in the proof at this stage?


Hi @sarikagarg,

To send the galley file to the author to check during the Production stage you just need to click the “Add Discussion” button in the “Production Discussions” box. An empty email template will open. Select the author and any other participants you want to include and attach the galley file you want the author to review.

If the author is not appearing as a participant, you will need to ensure that authors have access to the Production stage. Go to Users & Roles > Roles and make sure that there is check under Production next to the Author role.
