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.

Are non journal-specific submissions possible?

We are in the process of setting up a multi-journal OJS installation. Currently, many of our article submissions are undesignated for a particular jounal - that is, they are possible candidates for more than one of the journals we publish. We thought about creating a dummy journal in OJS designated as "submissions only", but can see no obvious way to subsequently assign these submissions to one of our "real" journal for reviewing/editing. Does anyone have any suggestions for accomplishing journal reassignment after initial submission?

Hi Steve,

You should be able to do this by reassigning the submission's journal in the database--E.g., make the submission to the dummy journal, then change the journal_id column for the submission in question in the articles table to whatever journal id you'd like it to be in. There's currently no built-in way to do this in OJS.
