Deleting submitted papers

Postby renatem » Mon May 07, 2007 11:31 am

We have upgraded to the latest OJS version, but now I a unable to delete submitted papers. Some of the authors start a new submission when their paper has 'disappeared', or when they want to upload a new version of their submission. How do I get rid of these duplicate submissions?
I could do it from the Files browser, but will the papers then disappear from the submission, review or editing queue?

Hi Renate,

As Editor:
1. On the submission's Summary page, Archive the submission.
2. Go to the Archive, find the submission, and click "Delete" beside its title.
