Are non journal-specific submissions possible?

Postby clute » Mon Aug 16, 2010 4:56 pm

We are in the process of setting up a multi-journal OJS installation. Currently, many of our article submissions are undesignated for a particular jounal - that is, they are possible candidates for more than one of the journals we publish. We thought about creating a dummy journal in OJS designated as "submissions only", but can see no obvious way to subsequently assign these submissions to one of our "real" journal for reviewing/editing. Does anyone have any suggestions for accomplishing journal reassignment after initial submission?

Hi Steve,

You should be able to do this by reassigning the submission's journal in the database--E.g., make the submission to the dummy journal, then change the journal_id column for the submission in question in the articles table to whatever journal id you'd like it to be in. There's currently no built-in way to do this in OJS.
