What you want to be doing is a Site Manager function, not a Journal Manager function - although your issue does raise the point that this may be counter-intuitive. The way to access this is as follows:
- from the same page, click on "User Home"; this will take you to the site homepage
- from this page, click on "Site Administrator"; this will take you to the site manager page
- from this page, click on "Hosted Journals"; this will show a list of all journals on the site
- click "Edit" for the journal you want to edit, and you should see an area to modify the journal's description.
Hope this helps!
