is there any kind of cryptography on the OJS? I used the SEER version (customized from IBICT - Brazil) and my database show me strange characters in the password. How can I to change this visualization?
Congratulations for a OJS. It's amazing system.
SEER/OJS, as you know it, creates a password salt automatically to encrypt user passwords. This is done to allow the system to recover those passwords.
I assume you have deleted the general editor (administrator) of the journal. You will need to run the final step of the installation again to create a new user with full permissions, that will be able to update that previous editor's role.

OJS 1.x uses MySQL's two-way ENCODE function to store passwords.
OJS 2.x uses either MD5 or SHA1, but could be extended quite trivially to use another encryption function (or no encryption) if desired.
