Remove identify reviewing interests box

Postby spekala » Thu Jan 23, 2014 8:15 am


We run multiple journals on a single installation of OJS, version One of our journals would like to remove the "Identify reviewing interests" box and text from the registration page while still allowing users to register as reviewers. Is this possible?

Hi Shayna,

The reviewing interests box appears for all journals, and isn't a configurable item in the journal setup. If you really need to disable it for a specific journal, it would be possible to modify some of the templates and remove or include it based on the current journal path.

The field isn't required, however. Perhaps you could simply modify the template and include a more obvious note saying that it does not need to be filled in.
