Hi,

After a paper was rejected, it was sent to archive but I did not delete the article. Next day I found that the articles that were archived(5 articles) are all deleted. There are 2 other editors who can delete these articles but both said that they didn't do it. Is there anyway I can confirm this ? Is there any logs for each user ?

Hi Kenny,

No, logs are associated with a submission, not a user. When a submission is actually deleted from the database, the submission event logs are also cleaned up. Can you confirm that it is indeed gone from the database by looking at the articles table?

regards,
Jason

Hi kennymatthew,

What you can do is look through your web server logs for the URL associated with deleting a submission (it will include "deleteSubmission"). Then you can check the IP address there to see who it maps to by looking in the sessions table (the ip_address column).

Hi kennymatthew,

It's tough to follow some ISPs, especially if they use proxies or multiple people work in the same office, but dynamic IPs usually don't change often and when they do they usually stay in the same subnet.
