RE: Publication submissions in non-English language I don't know how often this happens, as I wasn't monitoring the publication submissions, but I just found out because of this question, where a French publication was added, but the information wasn't also added in English. In order to avoid a lengthy and tedious clean-up process later, we may want to better "train/educate/inform" people submitting publications. Should we stress that better in the courses and add a brief video about how to submit publications and when it is in a non-English language how to add the info? Could we make the field headers more understandable? At the moment, we have description, which isn't too clear. Perhaps it could be "Abstract / report description / executive summary (in English)" - those would cover journals, reports etc.? Thoughts?
