Adding a role

Postby kosherfrog » Thu Jul 16, 2009 8:46 am

Our new journal will have a series of Advisors. How can I add that role to the list of existing ones?
What are the necessary changes to :
1. enroll users in this role and
2. Add the listing of advisors in the "People" section of the About page?

Hi kosherfrog,

You can't easily create a new role type for your journal; but you can choose to create your own masthead, including your own groupings such as "Advisor", from the Journal Management User Home page by clicking the Masthead link and following the instructions there.
