Our publishing system is still based on WordPress. Anyone familiar with the WordPress editing interface will recognise it. Simon has made me and the Associate Editors, Didi, Peter and Mary “Editors” of the site. I am beginning to use the site now and will try to communicate with you all through this blog. http://hejlt.org/blog/
The blog link is top right on the home page. Recent posts appear immediately left.
If you log in here, as well as blog “Posts”, you will notice a new top-level menu item called “Articles”. This is where, I believe, “Editors” will mostly work. “Authors” may also work here but will not have publishing privileges. “Articles” have “Issues”. “Editors” create “Issues” – assign “Articles” to “Issues” and curate them through to publication.
Another feature of the publishing system is a sophisticated cloud-based citation management and referencing system based on Zotero. https://www.zotero.org/ This can provide dynamic in-text citations in many common referencing formats (APA, Harvard, MLA). I will consider it optional for the first issue of vol 9, at least!
- can we get authors to submit properly templated work, ideally straight into the system? .
- How tight a house style do we want to impose? APA? Brookes “Harvard”

Brookes subscribes to Cite Them Right
In my ideal world the reader could choose how to see the references. The author could put them in as “Harvard” and the reader could choose to view as “MLA” or vice versa. But that is for the next millennium.
Finally, last question:
- What can and should we prescribe for submission?
I would prefer a Google doc, (even a Google Form?) but accept that we might have to consume digestible, templated Word documents. Do we? Really?
That’s all for the moment.
Thanks everyone.Tags: inception, platform, publishing, system
