What is the difference between Communities and Collections?
A Community is a dedicated space on authorea.com. It has a custom logo and banner, but it runs on an Authorea URL and it produces Authorea DOIs. Community plans are ideal for small research teams, university departments, journal clubs, and small preprint servers and society publishers. It allows them to appoint editors, invite and remove members, collaborate on content, and screen and post preprints. Communities can be integrated to journal submission systems (5 subcollections = 5 journals).
A Collection is a fully branded, white-labeled portal running on its custom domain and minting custom DOIs. Collections have no limitations on users or content (unlimited seats and DOIs), or collections (an unlimited number of journals can be connected). In addition, Collections feature advanced editorial capability, custom transactional emails, and user provisioning. Collections are content sites powered by Authorea.
