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.

We can't figure out how to submit or create editorials. The editors can't submit, and the general users can't. It doesn't show up as an option. Any suggestions?

You'll have to create an Editorials section first, for which you will have no peer review process.

For one of our journals we have the entire editorial in the abstract.

Hi John;

Thanks for your comment. That's exactly what we've done. THe problem is that we can't figure out where to upload/submit an editorial. Editors don't get the submission option. What URL do you go to?

I see what you mean.

Our editors all have a separate author's account. The Editorials section is not subject to peer review, and submission to the Editorials section is not limited to editors.

For another journal (http://pcsp.libraries.rutgers.edu/), the editor-in-chief wants to use separate pages for the editorials and for letters to the editor. The content for those pages is in the database, and the editor-in-chief manages those pages with a wysiwyg editor (I'm using the one from http://www.htmlarea.com/ - free & open source).
