My articles within Metadata Manager are displaying as "Draft"...How to get them "Accepted"? (example)

Submitted by: Edita Balladová, Mar 29, 04:06

Dear Support team member,

We are publishing a scientific journal Physiological Research. I have attended webinar “for begginers” and then submitted 15 articles into Metadata Manager and move them into Deposit on March 22.

However, after several days, the articles appeared back in Draft, not Accepted. May I ask you where is the problem? I move that 15 articles again into Deposit on 26 and 27 March.

Thank you for help,

With kind regards,

Edita Balladová

Many thanks for your email.

When you move them into deposit, you would then need to go into the ‘To Deposit’ section and click on the deposit button to actually submit the metadata to us.

All of the help documentation for Metadata Manager can be found here: https://0-www-crossref-org.libus.csd.mu.edu/help/metadata-manager/

Dear Paul,

Thank you for your help with submitting data,
I have followed [www.crossref.org/help/metadata-manager/https://0-www-crossref-org.libus.csd.mu.edu/help/metadata-manager/](http://0-www.crossref.org.libus.csd.mu.edu/help/metadata-manager/<https://0-www-crossref-org.libus.csd.mu.edu/help/metadata-manager/), however, I am still not sure about Online date of article publishing: I suppose Online date is the date, when a final version of an article appears on the Internet (as pdf file on our journal web pages) is that right? (We do not give Doi number to our pre-press versions, which are on the Internet as Epub Ahead of Print months before final version publishing).

Thanks a lot,
Kind regards,

Edita Balladova

Hello Edita,

Many thanks for your email.

Yes that is is correct, the online date would be when it was published online. There is no requirement that this date is included in the metadata as long as one of the publication date fields is present.

I hope this helps and if you have any further question or queries on this then please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Many thanks,
