How change publication date?

Hi @israel.cefrin, hi @ajnyga,

wow, this is interesting and useful.
I made it in a very more banal way (I suspect, too banal, that’s why I didn’t comment any further).
The date of publication, editable, of each article appears in the “Schedule for publication” tab (the blue button which appears in the right sidebar at the very last step of the publication process). I attach here a screenshot. I changed all of them one by one entering in each article.
@ajnyga, with the script you sent, you would run it each time for each issue published, is that right?

All the best,



Yes, you could do that. It just stamps the issue pubdate to the attached articles. Of course it does so to all published articles in that journal, but if the issue pubdate has not changed that should not matter.

this seems to have been fixed, see:

@budhi here’s a workaround:

Hi @shireen

I’ve answered you in the other post, could you please check it?


I could change my issue date, but the submissions date still the old one.
So, there’re two different date; for the issue and the manuscript
