Atla Open Press: Initial Assessment

This guide provides information for authors, prospective authors, readers and editors of the publications of Atla Open Press

Summary

Assigned editors will find their submissions in their Queue on the dashboard when they log in. These are the submissions they will be responsible for shepherding through the following ‘Review’ phase.

Initial Assessment: Steps

  1. The editor opens the submission by logging in to OJS and going to Submissions > My Queue and clicking the View button next to the submission title.
  2. The editor will then make an initial assessment. The editor reads over the submission to ensure that:
    • It is appropriate to the scope and mission of the publication.
    • The writing is of publishable quality (or will be after copyediting).
    • All necessary files are attached to the submission and the metadata is complete and accurate.
  3. If the submission is complete and the editor feels it is appropriate to consider, they will click the blue Send to Review button.
