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.

Sorry if there is an answer for this problem, but I Couldn´t find it.
I wasn´t able to fix a deadline to submissions. How can I prevent anyone from submit a paper after a certian date? Wil, the system automatically block submissions if we define a specific date?

Thanks a lot.

Hi folks,

There isn't any sort of submission deadline that you can set in OJS; but if you disable anyone but editors from submitting to all journal sections in your journal (from Journal Management -> Journal Sections, click Edit for each section and check "Items can only be submitted by Editors and Section Editors") then users will not be able to submit; rather, they will see a notification saying something to the effect that your journal is not currently accepting submissions. Authors who are also Editors, of course, will still be able to submit to all sections.
