We have been making some improvements to ORO and one that has been top of our list for some time is enabling authors to edit their own items.
There is a good use case for this as authors are increasingly being expected to deposit items before final publication details are known (e.g. volume, issue and page numbers).
Our changes mean that authors can make these edits themselves without having to ask a member of the ORO team to do it on their behalf. Just look for the “Submit Changes” button that appears at the bottom of the page of an ORO item.
Click the button and then you can change the bibliographic details of an ORO item or add full text to the item. Only authors or depositors can make changes to live items. Any changes to the bibliographic details are automatically made live – full text additions will be checked by ORO staff before they are made live.
