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.

Obscure Reviewing bug

OK,

Here is an obscure problem: A reviewer declined a request for review. Then she changed her mind. In order to re-appoint her, I "replaced" her but you cannot replace a reviewer with themselves so I replaced her with another reviewer and then replaced that reviewer with her. So far so good but when she logs in to upload her review, she is still listed as "declined" and the selction for "Select a recommendation:" is not there so she cannot enter a recommendation.

Perhaps not the most urgent bug to fix but for the record here it is. Thanks!

Blake,

I assume you did not send the reviewer assignment email. But if you did, perhaps what we did to solve this was to change the attribute in the database. This happens a lot with our reviewers too... They can never make up their minds...

However, version 2.0 will provide more flexibility in the review process, and a bit more control too.
