Once your event has been set up by the Morressier team, click on the three horizontal lines on the left-hand side to expand the drop down list.
Here you will see your event listed. Click on your event.
You will be taken to a landing page where you can start to input information relating to your Call for Papers.
Under the ‘Call for Papers’ tab, you will see various options for customizing your event. Start by entering a welcome message, which authors will see when they first log into the platform.
Here you can enter instructions and links to specific requirements or templates that you want the authors to use.
You can also upload a banner image in this section, creating a visual identity for your event.
To set the submission deadline, click on the calendar icon. Authors will not be able to submit a paper after this date but you can adjust the deadline after publishing the Call for Papers.
Categorizing papers makes it easier to allocate reviewers to individual papers. You can choose how many topics to create and add keywords which help authors and reviewers identify which category individual papers fall under.
There’s also an option to add a disclosure statement. If authors have a conflict of interest, they can fill in the text box with more information.
If you would like to add any additional sections, you can do this at the bottom of the page under ‘Custom section’.
Once you have entered the information, you can click ‘Preview’ to see what the page will look like to prospective authors. The preview will open up in a new tab and you can easily go back to the previous page if you want to make any changes. If you’re happy with how it looks, head back to the main page and click on the tab called, ‘Paper review settings’.
Under the first section, ‘Select review type’, you can choose how you want the papers to be marked - single anonymous or double anonymous. If you don’t want reviewers to see who has authored the papers they are asked to review, select the double anonymous option. Please note, this means authors will be asked to submit an additional, anonymized version of their manuscript.
You can set the minimum number of reviewers who should review each paper:
Set a default deadline for reviewers to complete their reviews by. (You will be able to assign different deadlines to individual reviewers later if you like).
And lastly, you can set up a scoring system, giving reviewers simple or graded options for marking the work. Both systems can be combined with the option of setting up 1 - 5 individual categories that reviewers should score each paper in.
Hit ‘Close’, and that’s it. You’re ready to publish!
