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.

yeah, so, privacy issues notwithstanding, is there any way for an author to explicitly choose particular reviewers? (i gather there's a way for an author to leave a note about what reviewers to *exclude*, but i'm wondering if there's any way for an author to robo-assign a reviewer, and thus save the editor/others from that task.)

thanks in advance for any help/advice,

HI wpk,

You won't be able to do that without customizing the code, unfortunately. Let us know if this is an option for you, and we can provide some pointers on where to get started.
