In this module, we’ll get an overview of the typical editorial workflow using OJS, from the submission of an article to the publication of an issue.
The editor oversees a complex set of interactions between a number of different team members. So it’s a good idea to grasp the underlying OJS workflow before learning about specific editorial tasks.
For this lesson, read Chapter Two of the OJS User Guide. It will provide you with a brief overview of the OJS interface and the roles used within the system. If you have any questions from the reading, please post them in the comments section below.
Many of the activities in this course will require a working OJS installation to experiment with. If you’ve taken the OJS for Journal Managers course, you can use the journal you developed there for these activities. If you don’t have a test journal to work with, you can set one up for free using our OJS Test Drive Journal (username = admin ; password = testdrive).
For this lesson, login to your test journal and just click around the interface. Try to get a sense of the different roles that we will be working with throughout this course. If necessary, you may want to take the OJS for Journal Managers course to get a better sense of how the software works.
