Add author roles on registration or set as default


Hello all!

OJS 3.1.14 I want to add the ability to check “Author” role or set it default after a registration.

“Allow author” is enabled on roles, but doesn’t appear there.

The last checkbox is for reviewer and it’s working properly, why author doesn’t appear?

Newly registered users automatically get reader or reviewer, but no author role

Since 3.1.1, all users automatically get the author role when they start a submission process.


Well, and how to let be author who register as “reviewer”?
