Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Access to biografical statement

Hi all,

How do conference administrators and/or reviewers have access to the biografical statements of prospective presenters? We're using OCS 1.1.x.

Thanks is advance,

Manuel

Hi Manuel,

Do you mean in order to display them, or in order to modify them?

Hi Manuel,

This should be available on the paper's Editing page; if not, check to see that the "Include a request to authors for a biographical statement..." option is enabled in setup, page 3.

The problem is that only accepted papers are shown in the "Edit Paper" page. Hence, it seems that no one but the authors have access to the biographical statement. I'm missing something.

Hi Manuel,

You can get access to that information by using the work-around described at http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1725. As that post mentions, this sort of issue will be solved with the release of OCS 2.0.
