Our journal has sometimes special issues. As an editor I do receive a notification of new submissions. But at the Submissions overview page in OJS it does not appear that a submission is for a specific special issue.
To make clear to the editor that a submission is made for a special issue we ask the authors in the “Submission Preparation Checklist” to tell for which special issue the article has been sent in the “Comments for the Editor” window. It then appears under “Pre-review discussions”.
As an editor it would be of great help if you could see immediately at the submission overview page that a submission is made for a specific special issue.
If there is no way to arrange this then it would also be useful to sent a notification to the editor that the author has sent “Comments for the Editor”. Even better when the “Comments” appear inside of the notification to the editor. Does someone has a solution for this?
