Metadata Field in Submission for Pronouns

Our editors and copyeditors have requested that pronouns be added to the contributor metadata in OJS. Currently they have workflows that ask the authors to include their pronouns in their author bio, but they would like a more structured way for this to be represented.

If this were possible the pronoun field would preferably be a free text field, ensuring that people can insert the pronouns they use without the PKP community having to maintain a list.
