KAPPA auto-creates publication folder in T:\PAC\_final-submission\

When a KAPPA record is created for a publication, would it be possible that there is an automated process to create a folder using the correct syntax in T:\PAC\_final-submission\ ?

This will ensure that:

  • folder names follow the PAC standard, reducing the number of erroneously named folders (or duplicate folders for the same publication)
  • PAC has the access rights to modify/delete the folder.
  • simplify the process for authors and PAC (authors appear not to understand the difference between the DOI/OECDcode/ISBN)
  • reduce overall frustration and lost time creating/locating folders.

Thanks in advance,

Damian (& squad)

    The idea seems good however this would not be necessary for some ebook only titles which are purely posted online such as third languages that are processed in Redmine.

    @Sarah, would you be able to create the folders?

    In the absence of a true CMS, one immediate solution would be that the folders are created when the KAPPA record is created.

    Plenty of potential gains! (see above ;) )
