Layout preparing question?

we have 5-6 people editors participating in editing-layout-proofreading process. I was wondering when PDF layouts are prepared for the final journal and page numbers are assigned to each article - how the different person which do not know the others are making the layout with the pages? Is there a way to mark in the system if someone start formatting a paper with a specific pages and others to see that and take the next page numbers for the next article?

Hi @vebaev,

There’s nothing in OJS 2.x to facilitate that kind of conversation. In OJS 3.0 (due out this summer) there’s a generic tool you can use to create conversations between users working on the same submission, a bit like a threaded email conversation; that would be a logical place to coordinate pagination.
