Forum rules
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.

How do I start the submission process? I'm not talking about as an author; rather, how do I "open-up" the journal so that authors can submit.

Please help.

Thank you

Hi pscapill,

My apologies for the extreme delay in responding -- your post was trapped in a moderation queue we don't generally use.

There are a few things to check: is your journal "enabled" under Site Administration > Hosted Journals > Edit? Is author registration allowed in Journal Setup (step 4)?

If so, anyone should be allowed to register as an Author, and should then be able to start a submission.
