Some questions regarding workflow and small bug report

Postby Garant » Tue Apr 22, 2014 8:57 am

Hi!
I'm having some questions and some bug reports.
Will start with bugs:
The test press: _https://www3.mruni.eu/omp/index.php/lpt/catalog/book/1
doesn't have links to files, instead of them - "Array" message.
Second bug: sometimes uploading files with a wizard causes a bug: file is uploaded, but continue button is disabled. So you should cancel upload and repeat it once more.
Third:

Here is my questions:
1). Is it a bug? When user wants to register with reviewer role he could complete the registration. But after registration opening it's profile the "reviewer" option will be unselected. Selecting it and pressing the save button causes the error: "the user doesn't have appropriate rights to make this action".
2). Could the reviewer after completing the review process see it's own history with finished reviews in the past?
3). Our work-flow differs. There will be many presses registered and the same reviewers must participate in many others monographs. Now they are able to register only to appropriate press and they will be assigned only to selected one. But do they have a possibility to select other presses by their own selection?
4). Could the author assign to it's own submission desired reviewer?

Thank you!
Garant

Hi Garant,

What version of OMP are you using?

Hi Alec!
It's 1.1 pulled from git after the official release.
And the fifth question :)
Does the OMP have a specific role, that one assigned person handles only reviewers?

Hi Garant,

For the "Array" issue, see the recommended patches list.

For the "Failed AJAX request or invalid JSON returned" message, check your PHP error log to see if something appears there. If not, what browser are you using? You may need to use the browser's developer tools or a plugin to see if there is an error message getting served from PHP into your AJAX response.

For the occasional upload bug, is it possible that you could capture this in more detail -- is it reproducible? Also, the above suggestion to check your error log might shed some light here too.

For reviewers being able to see their review history -- the dashboard (including reviewer's archive view) is among the highest-priority things we'll be working on for the next major release.

For the workflow tweaks (reviewer self-registration to multiple presses and author assignment to reviewers) we haven't heard of that type of workflow before, but will keep our ears open for other similar cases.

Your final question about workflow users who handle reviewers: currently the Editor role is the closest match. We don't have something specific to just handle reviewers. However, you could try experimenting with editing roles in the Access & Security area of Management to see if that will suit you.

Hi Alec!
Thank you very much for your answers!
We will apply patches and will test the system.
Regarding those errors - I can't give more information at this moment, because we were tight in time during the system's test and haven't logged those errors. Once they will occur - I will post information.
We have used the Firefox and Safari browsers.

Alec, what about this question:
1). Is it a bug? When user wants to register with reviewer role he could complete the registration. But after registration opening it's profile the "reviewer" option will be unselected. Selecting it and pressing the save button causes the error: "the user doesn't have appropriate rights to make this action".

Thank you very much!

Hi Garant,

Yes, that registration situation does sound like a bug. I've filed it at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8715.
