Submission Assignment

Postby metricgravity » Fri Jan 18, 2013 4:05 am


I am the website manager for an OJS journal. Papers submitted to the journal go into five categories: Unassigned, In Review, In Editing and Active.

The journal I am managing is not quite ready for public use, and I have been making test submissions. I discovered that new submissions are automatically put into the category, "In Review". The chief editor wants new submissions to go into the category, "Unassigned". I believe this is appropriate for the initial category. An older version of the journal which also is on OJS automatically puts new submissions in "Unassigned".

I have not been able to reset the initial category for submissions on the new version of the journal to "Unassigned". Does anyone know how to do this?

Thank you,

Hi metricgravity,

If there's only a single editor for that section, then the editor will automatically be assigned. On the submission's Summary page, you can remove all editor assignments and the submission will revert to Unassigned.
