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.

An article was submitted by someone other than the author, though the author's name and email were listed as such for the submission. But now it is the person who submitted the article who is associated with the submission in terms of following it through the editorial process instead of the author's account. Is there anyway to change this? That is, change the person associated with a submission? Thank you!

Hi jrshaffner,

My apologies for the extreme delay in responding -- your post was trapped in a moderation queue we don't generally use.

To change the user assigned to a submission, you'll need to go to the database. The column is the "user_id" column in the "articles" table -- set that to the desired value from the "users" table.
