The Crossref Curriculum

Save as draft

If the record you’re working on is not yet complete, you can choose to “save as draft”. Your record will be saved within Metadata Manager for you to work on later, but it won’t yet be submitted to the Crossref system. This is true whether your record is completely new, or you’re using Metadata Manager to update the metadata record for a DOI you’ve already registered with Crossref. When you want to submit the changes to Crossref, you must choose add to deposit cart and resubmit your deposit.

To save your record for later, go to Continue, and click Save as draft.

Metadata Manager save as draft function

When you are ready to continue editing the record or submit it, you can find it again under your workspace.
