Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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 do not want to register as users the authors other than the author who logged in system to send the article.

Is there any way or which code do I need to change.

Prevent automatic registration of authors

Why would want to prevent automatic registration of co-authors?

This feature helps you keep good track of authors, as well as assist probable authors in submitting to your journal.

If you use the user area, either the authors or users area, you can send an email containing user login and password so they may in the future submit their work without having to register. The data has been input anyway, why not use it?

Because some of the corresponding authors re-register the co-authors by mistake,
I want to save the co-authors only as authors, not as users.
