Can Copyeditors reject assignments?

Postby HQnet » Mon May 28, 2012 10:52 am


I am configuring OJS v 2.3.6 and starting to learn it's workflow from the point of view of every role.

In doing so I assigned a paper to a potential Copyeditor and I expected that user would be able to accept or decline de request, pretty much like Reviewers can do, but I couldn't find a way to either notify the acceptance nor decline the request.

Am I missing something, or does OJS assume the Copyeditors will always accept it?

(FWIW I am trying to have all notifications going though the internal mailing system.)

Thanks in advance.

Answering myself FWIW:

no, they can´t. They are expected to reply the invitation email, then the Editor should assign the task to someone else.
