This page provides short video tutorials for journal managers, editors, reviewers and authors on the editorial workflow within OJS.


Section Editors/ Editors: 



 Key points to remember when using OJS:

  • The editorial workflow model in the current version of OJS is linear by design and is intended to streamline all aspects of the editorial workflow and email communications between editorial teams and authors
  • This means that in order for a manuscript to move seamlessly from one stage of the submission workflow to the next, for example if a reviewer uploads an annotated manuscript for the author to revise and resubmit, they MUST:

1. Select the 'Notify' Icon 

2. EITHER: (a) Use the email template within OJS to notify the author of your changes and upload the revised file OR (b) Select the option at the bottom of the email template to 'Skip Email'.

If you do not do this the item will not move to the next stage of the workflow and appear in the author's workspace when logged in to OJS.
