[Flax] Manuscript ID and url
Flax is using Manuscript id to define the URL of the article (which is used foir the DOI).
Today, this idea is a long uuid (a0a0089f-9b48-4097-8418-2510ab64931b) which makes it hard to work with from a user perspective.
With Ben, we’ve checked a couple of options, including NanoID which could create a simple reusable and somewhat copyproof ID, that would still be usable in flax url.
Whatever is chosen, Kotahi will set the ID of the manuscript on submission, and it will stay the same for the whole life of the manuscript.
