Atla Open Press: Uploading Additional Files

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


  1. From the Workflow > Submission panel, the editor clicks Upload File.
  2. The editor ensures that the top drop-down menu reads "This is not a revision of an existing file" and uses the lower drop-down to select the type of submission component.
