Pages, a little clarification needed

Hi there, i’m a little confused with regards to the pages field when publishing an article.

Is this the total number of pages of the article, or the page numbers X to Y ?

Can this not be populated automatically if we are just uploading PDF’s?

Many thanks!!

Hi @keeno79,

This is e.g. Pages X-Y within the entire issue.

Dear @keeno79,

It is page number X to Y. for eg 2 - 5. Previously there was a bug so that a space between number and - was required for it to work in somewhere else, crossref submission, if I remember correctly. I don’t know whether it is fixed but I always leave a space there.

I don’t think there is a way for automatic population.
