Submission deadline

Postby luisalopes » Fri Feb 10, 2012 8:24 pm


Sorry if there is an answer for this problem, but I Couldn´t find it.
I wasn´t able to fix a deadline to submissions. How can I prevent anyone from submit a paper after a certian date? Wil, the system automatically block submissions if we define a specific date?

Thanks a lot.

Hi folks,

There isn't any sort of submission deadline that you can set in OJS; but if you disable anyone but editors from submitting to all journal sections in your journal (from Journal Management -> Journal Sections, click Edit for each section and check "Items can only be submitted by Editors and Section Editors") then users will not be able to submit; rather, they will see a notification saying something to the effect that your journal is not currently accepting submissions. Authors who are also Editors, of course, will still be able to submit to all sections.
