Author Emails

Is it possible to make the author e-mails field optional when adding a new submission?

Is it OK to do that? Will there be any consequences?

Thank you very much.

Hi hehe,

OJS depends on an email address for authors in order to be able to send emails to the author during the review process, and for things like password retrieval. While it would be possible to modify the database structure and the accompanying form classes to make that field optional, you'd have to edit a lot of code to get around not having an email in other areas.
