How do I start?
PEMSoft Editing Instructions, 2012.
1. Go to our website www.pemsoft.com Then go to "PEMSoft Editing" in the upper navigation bar, then to "Editing Instructions,” then to "How do I start?" or just go directly to: http://www.pemsoft.com/starting.
2. "How do I start?" summarizes our simplified editing process.
3. Find your topics in your section, and select a topic to edit.
4. Go to www.pemsoft.net and login to PEMSoft Online. Open the selected topic and click the "Print" icon from your topic's upper menu bar.
5. Copy the entire topic and paste over to a TextEdit (Mac) or WordPad (PC) document.
6. Go to “Save As” or "Save" and save as a Word document. Ensure the filename you give is descriptive and includes the topic name.
7. Open the Word document that you saved and activate "Track Changes" (VERY IMPORTANT TO DO THIS).
8. Edit the topic with Track Changes on. Source newer, updated references. Note any related topics to be updated.
9. Please improve text (watch the space limits). If you need more space, create a new subtopic. Add new references.
10. Source new images saved in jpeg format, if available.
11. Return the Word document to your Editor-in-Chief with the tracked changes, along with any images.
For any queries, contact your Editor-in-Chief.
DESIGN PRINCIPLES FOR TEXTUAL CONTENT
The over arching design for the presentation of the textual content is:
Editors will quickly find that the structure described above forces very clear thinking about the components for each Topic as well as restricting the amount of text in the Main Topic Field and SubTopic "pop up" fields. PEMSoft is designed as clinical decision support tool, which means information must be easy to find, clinically accurate, relevant and instantaneously available with minimal potential for misinterpretation or for being missed altogether because it is hidden "off screen".
