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.

Changing menu options on Review Step n. 6

a journal would like to remove step 6 from Review Process because they want just the review, not the reviewer recommendation.

I suppose that it's impossible to delete the final step, but can I have a menu with only an option (not 6)? An option that will be: "Please see the synthetic judgement in the evaluation form".

Important: this change should be only for a journal, the other ones will have at least two option.

Thank you

Hi Angelo,

You'll have to make code changes to do this, but you can make them journal-specific by checking which journal is being viewed as part of the modification. It'll actually be easier to hide the recommendation drop-down entirely than to change the options in it -- for your one journal, you can effectively force the choice of a single entry. Something like this, in templates/reiviewer/submission.tpl:
Code: Select all
{if $currentJournal->getPath() == 'mySpecialJournalPath'}
   {* This is a copy of the form code from the regular case, but with a "hidden" input instead of the drop-down. *}
   <form ...>
       <input type="hidden" name="recommendation" value="(the value of the recommendation you want this case to imply)" />
   ...The regular code for the reviewer recommendation form and drop-down goes here...
