Manually uploading and publishing back issues

Uploading and publishing back issues of your journal on Scholastica is simple! Just follow the steps listed here:

1.) Create an issue

To create an issue, go to the "Publishing" tab and click the New button then choose Issue

You will then fill out high-level information about your issue. This includes:

  • Volume (required)
  • Issue Number (optional)
  • Year (required)
  • Lede - a short description that describes the gist of the issue (required)
  • Description of the issue (recommended)
  • Issue Image (required)
  • Title (recommended)

Then click Create Issue to finish

2.) Add articles to your new issue

To add articles, click the 'Articles' row that appears after you've created the issue, then click the Add an article button. From there, you'll be able to choose from a list of articles that you've already created that are not currently contained within an issue. Please note that if you save an unpublished article to an already published issue, that article will then become published as well.

If you need help creating articles in Scholastica, please read our guide here.


Finally, after you've added all of the correct articles, you'll click the publish issue button. 

Once published, your back issue will be found on the Issues page of your journal's Scholastica website. Congratulations!
