Defining Editors keywords

Postby elcvia » Fri Jun 22, 2007 6:57 am


We are an online open journal ( and we want to migrate from a home-made software tool to OJS.

In our journal, each editor has associated a list of keywords and topics of interest to which he is related and is an expert. Once a paper is received, the editor selection is done depending on the match between the keywords of the paper and the editors.

Is there any way to define keywords for each user, and a way to define keywords for the papers to submit?
The keywords must be selected from a list of more or less 20/30 topics.

Thanks in advance

Hi elcvia,

OJS currently supports a text field for reviewing interests that might suit your needs; it can be searched when assigning a reviewer to a submission. It doesn't currently support controlled lists (i.e. it's a free-form text field, usually entered by the reviewer upon registration) but we're considering moving to controlled lists for a future release.
