Dear all,
Is it possibile that authors can assign a section editor during his online-submission process.

Best Regards

Hello all,
Not sure why you'd want to do that, but there's a simple way about it.
Instead of having the authors submit to sections, they submit to "editors as sections". That is, create sections with the names of the editors you need, and probably define the publishing sections as "restricted to editors", so that authors can only submit to a specific "editor".

Once the article is approved, you may move it to the respective section for publishing.
I've never tested this, and can't say what kind of statistics this would help you with.

Another way OJS allows to "direct" submissions to specific editors is to assign section editors. If you have only one per section, then the submission is automatically assigned to that editor for processing, review and publishing or archival.

Dear All, because Our journal cover a lots of field. With this feature, the author can pick or suggest a section editor whose field is closest to the author's field.
That's why I ask this feature. A lots of journal has such a design. for example JMAA ( Journal of Math. Analysis and Applications)
