Journal submissions platform: Can it be done RW-style?


(Jared Gardner) #1

Hi! I edit a small scholarly journal (devoted to comics!) and we pay a lot of money to a company whose job it is to accept the submissions people submit for consideration. Honestly, it doesn’t do a whole lot more than that, and I am starting to think I can perhaps build a basic version myself using RW. I wonder if anyone here has ever tried to build a submissions platform, or has recommendations on the best stacks or other tools that would allow users to fill in a submission form and then upload .docx, .zip or image files to cloud storage on my end? (I’ve been using RW for a long while, but I’d rate my skills at advanced intermediate… but always enjoy pushing myself to learn new things about it)

Some form stacks offer file upload.

Is one example but there are quite a few. There are also a few standalone file upload stacks out there as well.

TotalCMS also has a file upload feature I believe.
