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.

Multiple Authors in a Research Paper

What should i do if there are more than 1 author in a single research paper? do they need to register and submit the paper in OJS individually? is there a feature in OJS that a paper can be assigned to multiple authors?

Hi ictadmin,

Currently OJS only supports a single corresponding author, i.e. the primary author generally takes care of interacting with the system. We'll be adding more flexibility at some point based on the OJS 3.0 codebase, but not in the immediate future.
