Description Kevin Jamieson 2005-05-07 21:28:16 PDT
The following unimplemented setup option (inherited from OJS 1.x) was removed
from OJS 2.0:

Step 2.3 Sections

To create or modify sections for the journal (e.g., Articles, Book Reviews,
etc.), go to Section Management.

Authors on submitting items to the journal will designate...

- The journal section for which the item will be considered.
- The journal editor who will see it through the editorial process.

We should decide whether it is worthwhile to develop this feature for 2.x
(taking user feedback and requirements as well as the impact on the system into
account), or drop it permanently.

Section-based automatic section editor assignment should take care of this.
