Mapping Workflows

Below is an image from a whiteboard session conducted some weeks ago with myself, Alf Eaton and Dan Morgan.


It shows a number of roles (author, Reviewing Editor, Senior Editor, Reviewer) and their path through a component-based Manuscript Submission System built on top of PubSweet.

The components shown above are:

  • Dashboard
  • Submission Page
  • Editor
  • Review Control Panel
  • Review Page
  • Decision Page

We are currently building this out. Of course we have this broken down in a little more detail! Including the above to give some insight into the starting point of a typical process of mapping workflows onto a component based system. I’ll write more about this at another time.
