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.

I see that users must register for each journal separately. Is there a way for admin to set it up, where users would be able to register for more than one journal at a time? (Perhaps, where users can see a journal listing and click on those they wish to subscribe to) If not, is this something in development?

Hi laurakz,

Since most journals have their own specific access and subscription policies, this model is supported by OJS. Readers thus need to register for each journal individually if they wish to access content or purchase a subscription.

There are currently no plans to add support for the use-case that you identify here, but it may be something that we consider for a future release if there's sufficient demand from the user community.
