Problems to create new authors.

Postby enekoempa » Sat Mar 23, 2013 4:08 am

Hi all,

I am working to migrate all articles of a scientific journal to OJS platform. When trying to create an external author, it says that author already exists and does not leave us to create any author. Does anyone know what is the problem?.


Thank you very much,


Regards.

Hi enekoempa,

A user (username, email address) may only have a single account on the system. If you don't see that user listed in your journal, then it probably exists but doesn't have any assignments to that particular journal. (OJS supports multiple journals in the same installation.) Use the "Enroll Existing User" link to find the user and assign them to an author role.

Dear Smecher,

First of all thanks for replying. At the moment there are only 5 authors created from the editor profile. When you try to create profile authors without the editor profile put the name and email you put says that already exists. what we want is that any outside person is able to create a profile of author.

Thanks in advance,


Regards.
