First I’d like to say that I really love QuickSubmit and I use it a lot with my journals, especially because one of my project areas is migrating publications with back files from other, irregular platforms to OJS.
Two helpful improvements would be:
- including Categories in the form
- being able to assign DOIs (or check a box to have a DOI assigned) through the form
When uploading back files, it’s way quicker and easier to publish the articles to an issue through the QuickSubmit form. However, the tradeoff is that I have to edit individual articles and assign the DOIs and Categories (where applicable). This a bit of a pain in 3.1-, but in 3.2+ that means creating a new version, making the edit, and unpublished the first version that came out of QuickSubmit.
