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.

Recently I installed a OJS for a couple of e-magazines. In one of them the system works as expected (articles go to "unassigned" until the Editor assign them to Section Editors) while in the second, articles go directly to "review".

With this scenario looks like this is a configuration issue... but, although checked carefully both configurations, I can't find what param I need to change to make the second magazine work as the first one.

Does any body know how to fix this?

Thanks a lot for your help,

Hi mbria,

This is happening because you have Section Editors assigned to Sections. As Journal Manager, edit each of your Sections, and if you don't want submissions to be automatically assigned to Section Editors, make sure none are listed there.

Thanks Alec,

The problem was exactly what you pointed. Removing default "Section Editors" did the job.

Sorry for the annoyance.

Thanks a lot for your help,
