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.

I'd like to know if reminders have been sent to reviewers.
I didn't find them in email_log table in the database, but I noticed that subscriber notification email are not there either.
Is there another place to look to find automated email log ? Or are they just not logged ?

Thank you

Hi Marie,

Take a look at the date_reminded and reminder_was_automatic columns in the review_assignments table; these will indicate when a reminder was last sent, and whether or not it was automatic. (Manual reminders are also possible.) The date reminded should also be visible on the Editor's Review page for the submission, though OTOH I don't think it's visually indicated whether the reminder was automatic or not.
