Leaving volume fields empty in Metadata Manager (example)

Submitted by: Alexey Skalaban, Apr 03, 06:14

Dear Colleagues,

Some journals in Russia do not use Volumes but only issues. What should they put in Volume field in Metadata Manager?

Thank you,

Hi Alexey,

You can just leave the Volume, Volume DOI, and Volume URL fields empty. They’re all optional, not required.
