Restrict author's viewing of assigned editor

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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.

Restrict author's viewing of assigned editor

Once a manuscript has been submitted, is there a way to restrict the author from viewing who the assigned section editor/editor is?

We have the same question. Did you figure out a way to do this? It's a huge issue that the author can see who the editor is.

I have the same issue, and additionally I would like to know if it possible to restrict users's rights to view all the files (editor's, reviewer's). It is very confusing, and sometimes it is much better for reviewer to be able to write on his files without fearing that the author will see the comments.

Hi Andrea,

Reviewers are never allowed to read comments or file uploads except with the permission of the Editor. Reviewers can upload their comments and files without fear of the Author accidentally seeing them, as long as the Editor is mediating the communication properly.

I am sorry Alec, but I think this is not the right answer to this topic.
To hide editor from authors is also very much important for our journal as well...

Hi Hrvoje (or Andrea),

Can you describe your workflow? I'm not familiar with cases where the Author needs to be kept ignorant of the identity of the Editor.

Hi everyone, we have a similar concern.
We are looking for a workflow management tool allowing a double blind peer reviewing process, meaning that both author(s) and editor(s)
are kept ignorant of who is reviewing them and symetrically whose paper they are reviewing.

Hi Isabelle,

I'm not familiar with workflows where editors are kept blind. However, I suggest enrolling these users as Reviewers rather than Editors or Section Editors; if that doesn't give them sufficient privileges then you may consider modifying the Section Editor role slightly for that purpose.

Hi Alec,

You were right of course, my tongue slipped as I wanted to say "reviewers".

Hi Isabelle,

That's easy, then -- OJS is designed to support double-blind reviews.
