Manuscript tags can be applied to individual manuscripts and are only visible to editors. Tags are helpful for grouping and searching manuscripts on the manuscript table page.
Visit My Journals > Settings > Configuration Options:
Next, scroll down to the "Manage manuscript tags" section. There you will see a list of all tags currently used by your journal as well as the number of times a tag has been applied to a manuscript:
Say you would like to change all manuscripts currently tagged with "constitutional-law" to instead be tagged with "con-law". You can accomplish this by renaming the "constitutional-law" tag. To rename a tag, click the edit icon within the "Manage manuscript tags" table and complete the form.
When you delete a tag, it will be removed from all manuscripts where that tag is present. To delete a tag, click the delete icon in the "Manage manuscript tags" table.
