Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

how to disable user registration notification

Hi there, I would like to know how to disable the user registration notification email that is sent out to reviewers when I register them. Before I invite them i have to register them (create reviewer) but I have heard that receiving this registration email from our system puts many people off and they don't respond to my invitation email I send. This is the message I want to disable:
"You have now been registered as a user with our Journal. We have included your username and password in this email, which are needed for all work with this journal through its website. At any point, you can ask to be removed from the journal's list of users by contacting me. "

Is there a way to turn this user notification off?

thank you!

Hi MaiJournal,

That email is only sent if you check either the "Generate a random password" and/or the "Send the user a welcome email containing their username and password" checkboxes; make sure neither is checked and the notification shouldn't be sent. (Unless I'm misunderstanding where you're creating the reviewers; where are you doing so?)

FYI, you can also modify the text of that email from the Journal Manager's "Prepared Emails" list.
