last updated 2021-02-09

This is a work in progress and hardly anything of all this is yet visible publicly.

8. Sandbox mode

Sandbox mode is a mode of using RQC. It extends over one login session: A user can initiate sandbox mode upon login. It will end upon logout.

Sandbox mode is just like the "real" mode of using RQC (called RQC proper), except that it has a largely separate universe of data and a few differences in functionality as follows: - In sandbox mode, all normal Publishers, Journals, and Research Institutions, as well as all their content (reviews, gradings etc.) created in RQC proper are invisible. (Users remain visible.) - In sandbox mode, only Publishers, Journals, and Research Institutions created in sandbox mode are visible. - In sandbox mode, any User can create a Publisher, make themselves or others a Publisherperson, create Journals, make themselves or others RQGuardians and Editors. - In sandbox mode, RQGuardians can create virtual submissions. A virtual submission will contain fantasy data for submission and reviews and can be handled and graded like a real submission. - In sandbox mode, RQGuardians can virtually end the year at any time and then trigger the creation of Receipts manually. - All data in everybody's sandbox is automatically deleted at the end of the actual year (December 31) every year.
