Atla staff are responsible for movement of manuscript content into Editoria, creation of the copyright and title pages, finalization of the cover, and preparation of final galleys for publication. The liaison editor is responsible for working with the author to finalize content. The copy editor is responsible for copy editing. The EiC is responsible for final review and approval to publish.
- The SCC loads manuscript content into Editoria, performing initial formatting and insertion of images/tables/etc., and advances prepared chapters to the "Edit" stage. The SCDPM prepares copyright and title pages.
- The liaison editor (and guest editor, in the case of edited collections) review manuscript(s), suggesting needed changes and leaving comments in Editoria. When finished, they advance chapters to the "Review" stage.
- Authors review editorial changes and comments, accepting/rejecting changes and responding as necessary. When finished, they advance chapters to the "Clean Up" stage.
- Editors review author responses. If additional changes are felt necessary, chapters are sent back to the "Review" stage for further revision. Otherwise, all remaining tracked changes and comments are resolved and chapters are advanced to the "Page Check" stage.
- The copy editor confirms accuracy and consistency of all copy, formatting, and markup (with special attention to tables and images) and advances chapters to "Final".
- Upon receipt of cover alternatives from the designer, the liaison editor, author/editor, and SCDPM meet to select a design (final authority for this selection rests with the SCDPM). The SCDPM finalizes feedback to the designer and, upon receipt of the final file, uploads it in OMP.
- The SCC prepares PDF and EPUB proofs from Editoria and submits these to the EiC.
- The EiC reviews proofs and either requests changes or issues final approval.
