Global Settings: Your paper's Editor's note

Editor's note

To edit your Paper's Title, Subtitle and Editor's note, from your Paper Settings Dashboard, choose Global settings.

From there, you may edit your editor's note.


Maximum character length  An editor's note has a limit of approximately 10,000 characters.  The number is approximate because the field is converted from HTML to plain text; formatting (bold, italicized, etc) may take up some characters.


A note... on Editor's notes

Some publishers write an Editor's note and their intention is for the message to remain throughout multiple editions.  

For others, especially those publishers using Manual Publishing, the Editor's note is used as a place to record a message for a particular edition.  For this group of careful curators, it's important for the message in the Editor's note to match the exact edition they curated.

If you're one of our publishers who change their message regularly to match a particular edition, please keep the following in mind:

Editor's notes should be added soon after an edition is created/published (for both draft and automatic editions). The note saved for the edition shown in the archives will be the last note present at the time the edition is archived.

When is an edition archived?

Generally, an edition is archived whenever a new edition is created.  But if the edition was created using Manual Publishing, the published draft is auto-archived after 21 days, even if a new edition is not created. 

Things get trickier if you are switching back and forth from/to Manual Publishing to/from Auto Publishing! Doing so may shorten the time you have to edit your paper before the edition is archived and is not recommended.  


What next?  Learn how to set your paper's publishing schedule.  Your publishing schedule will determine how often your paper automatically updates.
