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.

going mad for editing process

editing process is driving me crazy, one of reviews that I'm going to manage has a very simple structure, one Director/Editor and 3 Section Editor.

They don't use peer rewieving.

Authors keep contact with them by phone o private email, they send the articles but often they meet and give articles by hand (sometimes also hand-writed), and the staff makes the pdf without a specific Layer Editor.

So the Director / Editor would like to submit and store articles in a pair of click.

But we do not understand how to simplify the process, it seems that for each article we have to do a lot of fake steps assuming each time different indentities: author, section editor, layer editor, editor...
.... and often, a the end, we just see the abstract and just in two cases we found the PDF published, but we made so much attempts that we cannot remember how we arrived to it.

Does someone has suggestions?

btw: Should be nice a plug-in (allowed only for the Chief Editor) that should be called: "Publish in One Click".

Hi Alf,

This feature is available to users who are registered both as Editor and Author; search the forum for "expedite" for details.
