Special Issues

Postby emma » Thu Nov 10, 2005 7:56 am

I was wondering if it was possible to set up Section Editors to only have access to certain, desginated articles?

I would like to set up 2 guest editors to do a special issue on the system. Any article coming in for the special issue would be put in the Special Issue section. I do not want the guest editors to have access to our regular articles.

Is it possible to restrict access to certian articles for Section Editors?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Emma,

Unfortunately there's currently no way to restrict Section Editors to only the articles to which they've been assigned; I'll suggest this as an option in the next release of OJS.

If the guests don't require full-fledged section editor access, you might consider providing them with other roles e.g. reviewer and copyeditor.
