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.

Section Editor Privileges

Is there any way in OJS 2.2.4 to give section editors read only access to the list of submissions Under Review and In Editing, other than assigning them Editor status? Right now section editors can only see the submissions for their own section, but it would be beneficial for section editors to be able to see what reviewers have been assigned by other editors, and also for copy and layout editors to be able to see what work is in the queue that will eventually end up on their plates.

Hi David,

Unfortunately, the only way to do so would be sign them up as full Editors -- at which point they would have full access to any submission in any queue. if you're a small team and can trust your various editors, this might be a good enough solution; if not, you could conceivably write a plugin to display the kind of info you want in a purely read-only way. If you have development resources on your team, give it a shot, and let us know if you need any pointers.
