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.

Editor uploading articles

As the editor/ journal manager I'd like to submit a document containing "Notes on Contributors". There is no author, but the system demands an author name to accept the submission.

Is there a way for me to submit and/or upload this document without having my name attached to it?

Hi Joan,

Currently OJS requires at least one author for any article. Note that this doesn't necessarily have to have the same name, email, etc. as the actual user account for the user who is submitting the article; when you submit an article you have the opportunity to provide whatever author details you wish. I'd suggest attributing articles like this to "Editor" or something similar. However, removing attribution entirely would require some code changes.
