Atla Open Press: Reviewing Full-Issue Galleys

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

Reviewing Full-Issue Galleys: Steps

  1. To locate the full-issue galleys, the EiC goes to the Issues panel and selects Future Issues.
  2. To the left of the upcoming issue name, the EiC clicks the blue arrow.
  3. The EiC clicks Edit.
  4. In the new screen that appears, the EiC clicks on the Issue Galleys tab. The galleys can be reviewed by clicking on PDF and EPUB, respectively.
  5. When reviewing galleys, editors may request changes in any of three ways:
    • The editor may open the PDF in Acrobat and use the “comment” feature of that program to leave notes on the document indicating requested changes. The commented PDF should then be attached to a post on the submission’s discussion board.
    • The editor may print out the PDF, mark up the document by hand, and attach a scan of the marked-up copy to the submission’s discussion board.
    • The editor may write out a list of requested changes in a post to the submission’s discussion board.
  6. Regardless how comments/changes are submitted, the reviewing editor sends a message through OJS to the layout editor notifying him or her when all comments/corrections have been made and are available to view.
