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.

Deadline for author proofreading?

I would like to modify the email template PROOFREAD_AUTHOR_REQUEST in such a way that it would include the date by which the author is supposed to complete the proofreading and return the comments. Is it possible to set a deadline for the author to return the proofs? Is there anything similar to $reviewDueDate available for proofreading, too?

Thanks in advance, Primož

Hi Primoz,

There isn't anything similar to $reviewDueDate available for proofreading. You might think about editing the PROOFREAD_AUTHOR_REQUEST prepared email, though, to add a generic deadline (something like "Please return the proofread manuscript within two weeks."). Otherwise you'll have to add the specific deadline to the email each time you send it out to the authors.

Hope this helps.
