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.

I need to add some code to OJS 2.0.2 so that journal editor or manager is notified via email when an author submits an article. I'm looking in the classes, but if someone could point me to the right directories and/or files, it would be very nice.

Hello Leo,

The easiest thing to do would be to add another recipient to the Submission Acknowledgement email, which is sent to the author when a submission is completed. Look in classes/author/form/submit/AuthorSubmitStep5Form.inc.php, around line 85.
