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.

In the OJS 2.x Journal setup, you can disable Layout Editors, Copyeditors, and Proofreaders. You aren't required to use Reviewers, either.

Even though you can perform all the Section Editor's tasks as an Editor, you must still assign a Section Editor to a submission before you can move it into Copyediting.

In version 2.x, in the Management section of Journal Setup, you can choose whether or not to have the editor act as Copyeditor (4.4), Layout editor (4.5), or proofreader (4.6).

See pp. 47-49 in OJS in an Hour:
