Changing status from reviewer to reader, reader to author,

Postby Hodgins » Tue Dec 10, 2013 1:45 pm

When a member registers with us they have a choice of signing up as a reviewer, author, reader. I'm finding that no one follows that policy. I have authors registering as reviewers and readers as reviwers and authors as readers. There doesn't seem to be an easy way of correcting these errors. Would you go through the process to see if I'm doing it right?

Thank you.

Hi Hodgins,

You can correct users' choices through Journal Management. Unfortunately it's common for users to choose these more or less at random -- we're open to suggestions for how to make it clearer, and I believe we've already made some progress that'll be released in OJS 3.0.
