The NGGJ locations entries editor

If you are the first editor of an article, the online editor will suggest a preset outline for the article. This structure should help structuring your article. It is inteded as an aid, thus its use is not mandatory. However, in order to achieve a certain coherence among the articles of the NGGJ, we recommend following this preset structure.

Here are some of the most important functions of the online editor:

This button adds a footnote in the position of the cursor in the text editor. By clicking this button, a window on the right side opens. There you can enter the footnote's text.

This button inserts a comment in the position of the cursor in the text editor. If you click here, a window will open on the right side where you can enter the comment. These comments are only visible to the authors during editing process.

The "Chat" section is located at the bottom right of the editor. You can use this tool to communicate with co-authors during the writing process. Since they might not necessarily be writing at the same time, you will probably receive a response with some delay.

You can submit the article for review to the editorial staff. You might want to consult with your co-authors and reach a consensus as to when the article is ready for review.

Advanced settings

For a better overview in the article editor, you can change some of the settings to customize the editor to better meet your needs. The most relevant functions are:

  • Author colors on/off: by default, all author changes are highlighted in color in the text so that you can visually associate each passage with an author. For more focused writing, you can turn off these color markers if necessary.
  • Line numbers on/off: if requested, line numbers can be displayed at the left margin, these will consecutively number your line breaks.
  • Outline on/off: we recommend structuring the article using different headline sizes. For longer articles, it may be useful to show this outline in the right sidebar.
  • Spell check on/off: the editor provides basic spelling aid, which marks doubtful spellings with a red wavy line. You can switch off this aid.
