How to view galleys as editor?

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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.

Greetings -- we're using OJS for the full process for our next issue. In the past, we only used it up until copyediting, and then printed hard copies outside of the system. Layout Editor reports success on the first file:

[CLJ] Galleys Complete

Galleys have now been prepared for the manuscript, ""Phenomenal Women,"
Collaborative Literacies, and Community Texts in Alternative "Sista"
Spaces," for Community Literacy Journal and are ready for proofreading.

... but then adds:

"I didn't realize that by clicking "complete"I was locking out any future
changes. Perhaps someone can "undo" my mistake ?"

Is there a way I can see what she sees? As editor, can I view her galleys?

Hi Michael,

If you are a Journal Manager, you can log in as that user -- simply click the Layout Editors link from your Journal Management page, and then click the "Log in as" link next to the layout editor's name. You'll effectively see the site as they do.
