Changing the Settings for Adding Authors to a Submission

Postby metricgravity » Tue May 22, 2012 10:05 pm


I have a question about modifying the process of submitting a manuscript to an OJS journal. In Step 3 of the submission process, an author enters his name, the title of his paper, and his abstract. The author can add additional names by clicking the button labeled, "Add Author".

I would like multiple boxes for the names of authors to appear simultaneously by default. (Currently, the default setting is for only one box for the name of an author to appear.) Furthermore, I would like to set the system up such that an error message will not appear if a user does not fill in all of the boxes for the names of authors. (Right now, a user gets an error message if he does not fill in all of the boxes he has selected for the names of authors.)

Does anyone know of an easy way to set the system up to do this?

Thank you,
