Description John Willinsky 2007-01-09 16:46:25 PST
If users are able to sign up to be authors, reviewers and/or readers, then that capacity should be available as an on/off on their Edit Profile page, at the bottom, under Bio Statement. As users can work across multiple journals in a single installation each journal should appear (if the settings on that journal allow for such self-enrolment). This does away with the need for "New issue published email notifications"'

Current User Roles
Reader: Notified by email when the journal publishes.
    [ ] Journal A
    [ ] Journal B
Author: Able to submit items to the journal.
    [ ] Journal A
    [ ] Journal B
Reviewer: Willing to peer review for the journal.
    [ ] Journal A
    [ ] Journal B
    Identify reviewing interests (substantive areas and research methods). 
    [                                                                                             ] 

NOTE: This is a special request for Open Medicine and should be installed as soon as possible on their site.

Hello all,

Complementing the information:
wen a user registers only as a reader and a while later decides to submit a paper, unless that user chooses "Register in another Journal", finds the same journal (which is confusing for installations hosting just one!), there is no clear way for this user to know how to enroll as an author and start a submission.

I too believe it is imperative to enable in the profile user enrollment in the roles defined in the configuration, if possible.

Hi all -- this has already been implemented for 2.2 in bug #2336.
