Orientation on using FI-Admin for LILACS-Express Editor
The FI-Admin is a system for the management of the VHL sources of information. It will replace the current LILACS-Express Editor system, LILDBI-Web, used by librarians of VHL and LILACS networks, among other VHL information sources.
It provides inclusion of minimum data on the articles and load of full text in PDF within the BIREME / PAHO / WHO server.
Before starting the addition of a new issue of your magazine, check the last issue published in LILACS and in the LILACS -Express Editor system to avoid duplication of work.
There will be no migration of existing data in the LILACS -Express Editor.
