Automated author notification when the status is changing

Dear all,

as far as I know, there is no automated author notification when the status of the submission is changing from “awaiting assignment” to “under review”. Is it possible to implement this in OJS
Since I’m myself an author in an OJS journal, such a notification would be very helpful.

Thanks and greetings to you all!


Hi @Sleipnir,

You’re correct, there is currently no author notification for that. In OJS 2.x the distinction between Unassigned and In Review is editor assignment; if you wanted to code a notification into the editor assignment, you’d need to add it to EditorAction::assignEditor.
