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.

Once a Layout Editor has uploaded Galleys, the OJS processes the file into the format to be displayed by the system. The original HTML remains with the Layout Editor.

Sometimes, however, another person may need to edit that HTML later on, for example to correct an error after proofreading when the original Layout Editor is unavailable.

However, if you download the HTML from the journal site, it is not an exact copy of the galleys, making it very difficult to edit.

I recommend that the original galleys, exactly as submitted by the Layout Editor, be accessible for download on the Editing screen.
