Hi Jannie,

Check for settings in the journal_settings table with a setting_name from the following set, but without a value in the 'locale' column:

authorGuidelines, submissionChecklist, copyrightNotice, metaDisciplineExamples, metaSubjectClassTitle, metaSubjectClassUrl, metaSubjectExamples, metaCoverageGeoExamples, metaCoverageChronExamples, metaCoverageResearchSampleExamples, metaTypeExamples, competingInterestGuidelines

Thanks Alec, all records with setting_name from your list have a value in the 'locale' column.

Hi partove,

As above in this thread, this suggests that you have entries in journal_settings with the same "setting_name" but for which there is a mixture of set and unset "locale" values. For any "setting_name", all rows should have a "locale" value of either null or a string value; a mixture of both is not permitted. The most likely cause is an incomplete upgrade.
