There are many additional fields listed after divisions (fields are list alphabetically). Initially, fields will have one of two sources Core Field that means in it defined in the EPrints data object class itself and From cfg.d, which means they have been defined in a configuration file separate to those created by Manage Metadata Fields. You cannot edit these existing through Manage Metadata Fields but you can create and edit new one by clicking in the Create a Field button.
