Submission form 3 - change keywords text input to select box

We are using OJS 3.1.2, and my team wants to structure the keywords for a submission, so the user picks from a list and does not simply type in free text. Therefore, I need to replace the keyword text box at the bottom of Submission form 3 with a select box. I would appreciate some pointers about how I could go about that. I checked the forum, and have been looking through the code, following the Doxygen documentation, but it is not clear to me how to change a field in the form…

Thanks for any pointers.

Best regards,

Hi @paulwwarner,

There are a few relevant issues in github discussing this sort of change; see e.g.: [OJS] User-Defined Vocabulary for Keywords and Reviewer Interests · Issue #1550 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub
