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

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.

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 OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Hi,

An author has submitted his paper twice( article ID 150 and 151). Is there anyway to remove the 2nd article(#151) so that we could use the number again for another submission?

Hi kennymatthew,

You can delete the article by moving it to the Archive and finding the Delete option there, but this won't cause the ID to be reused. The IDs come from the database so you would have to reset the sequence there; I don't recommend it.
