Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

In our journal there are more than one section editor assigned to each journal sections. How they operate in such situation? How the submission is managed then? In most cases presented there is just one editor or section editor.

Hi Peter,

If more than one SE is assigned to a journal section, they will all be automatically assigned to any assignment that comes in, and will have to manage their duties outside of the system. If you have many SEs and want to control who works on which article, you should not assign any SEs to any journal sections. Then, whenever a submission comes in, the Editor(s) will have to assign an SE.
