Our OJS-installation will be serving several journals, and one of the journals to be transfered to OJS, has been running for several years. They are not quite happy with the OJS-workflow as it is today, since they have their own way doing things.
Is it possible to:
Create new roles? The one role in particular they're missing, is co-editor. The co-editor will take over many of the editor's tasks.
I've read other threads where you advise against it, e.g. this onehttp://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4179
Can you give some more arguments why not?
Rename existing roles? This journal is a small one, and instead of "Section Editor", they prefer "Editorial Assistant". The tasks are very much the same, but will also include some editor's tasks and some copyediting and proofreading.
In connection with this question: is it possible to move tasks from one role to another role? If yes, is this described somewhere?
Regarding these two questions: it is important that changes made for one journal, don't affect the rest on our OJS-installation.
