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.

Can't submit to other journals with the same account!

Hi,

I've noticed a problem with my ojs installation. When I register with one journal, I can login in other journals on the site but I can submit only to the journal I registered with!
How is it possible to be able to log into all journals with the same account but not be able to submit to them?
In this case, having one account for the site level doesn't help much, because one have to register (with different usernames and emails) in each journal to be able to submit to it!
This complicates things!
Does anyone noticed this problem or it is proper to my settings/configuration?
Is it solvable?

Hi OJSer,

If you want to be able to submit to a journal, you need to be enrolled in that journal as an author. Roles are assigned on a per-journal basis. You don't need to create a second account, but you do need the Author role assigned to that user in the second journal.

Regards,
Jason
