Hi ganesh,

Do you have reCAPTCHA enabled for your user registrations? It looks like you're getting some spam accounts created.

But unwanted entries are still appearing in the Reviewers interest box.

Hi Ganesh,

I would suggest looking in your database to see which users those reviewer interests are assigned to, and then deleting those accounts. What version of OJS are you using? The process for storing reviewer interests has changed over time.

Hi Ganesh,

In that case, you can have a look in your 'controlled_vocab_entry_settings' database table. The offending review interests will be in those rows that have a setting_name of 'interest' with the setting_value of the entry. You can just delete the rows of the records that you don't want. If you want to remove the user entirely, you can find them from the Journal Manager interface, and search based on review interests.

Regards,
Jason
