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.

Hi Alec and colleagues,

I am registering authors and reviewers in OJS as my role of journal manager and when I go into create new user in journal management it keeps defaulting to the username and password of an author I recently set up. I keep having to delete those fields. Do you know why it is doing that?

Hi Katharina,

Most likely that is your browser attempting to auto-fill the form; you'll need to change that behavior in your browser's configuration.
