You have 3 options:
1) Only one person actually puts the article into the system, but can
    nominate co-authors
2) A linear workflow where one person puts the article into the system,
   another adds their bit, and repeat until everyone's contributed (each 
   only gets one go)
3) A CVS type system with checkout/checkin.
