Hi! When a Journal manager or Editor tries to submit an article (using the Submit or Quick Submit procedure) she has to enter the author’s data every time even if the author is registered as a user and/or has already submitted some articles.
The question is whether it is possible to somehow choose the contributor from the list of registered ones? Or if it is not possible, how could we ensure the contributor would be always the same entity in the database, no matter how often we enter his/her name, e-mail, etc.?
E.g. If the Journal manager adds some Contributor, and then the Editor enters the same data (name, e-mail) for another article PLUS some additional data (ORCID, affiliation, bio), would the latter be synchronized for this certain contributor?
