Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Hi Niels,

To delete an issue, you must log in as an Editor. Go to your User Home --> Editor --> Back Issues, and click the Delete link next to the issue you want to delete.

To delete an article, you will have to go to the article's submission Summary page. Find the article in either the Unassigned, In Review, In Editing or Archives lists from your Editor's page, and click on the title. Then click on the article's Summary page, scroll down until you see the option to archive the submission, and do so. You'll be prompted to send an email: either send or skip the email to properly archive the submission.

Archiving a submission removes it from the Review/Editing workflow and places it into the Archives. You can visit the archives list, and any archived articles can be permanently deleted there by clicking the Delete link.
