Publication date is set in one of two ways:
- When all articles in an issue should have the same, year-only publication date
Year-only publication date for an entire issue is set by going to Manage All Submissions > Issues > Back Issues > (Select an issue) and then selecting the "Issue Data" link. Check the box next to Year and enter a value. When you update the published issue, all articles will receive the same publication date.
- When each article should have its own individual publication date
Navigate to the "Issue Data" link as described above, but for this option, you should un-check the Year box and make sure the value of the Year box is set to 0.
Next you will need to the Table of Contents view and click on each individual article's title. From the 'Scheduling' section of each article's 3. Edit screen, set the publication date and save your changes.
Once you have all the dates set, you'll need to return to the Table of Contents preview screen and select the 'Update Published Issue' button for the changes to take effect.
