We just upgraded to 220.127.116.11 and after the upgrade, we noticed something new in the Editorial Activity report. The line for Other Submissions is unexpectedly high for all the journals on our platform, and for all the journals, this number is somewhere in the range of 2,200 - 2,300 (even though none of our journals has that many submissions).
Here is a screenshot from one of our test journals’ editorial reports, with the Other Submissions line highlighted:
There is a possibility that this has already been identified as a bug here: [OPS] Editorial Activity statistics are inaccurate · Issue #7709 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub - but others may wish to weigh in.
Hi @rcgillis - it looks like in our case the same bug may affect our journal. 3445 other submissions in the last three months are too much.
Thanks for your comment. Sorry - I had the wrong link to it and edited my above post. The bug is actually here: [OPS] Editorial Activity statistics are inaccurate · Issue #7709 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub
It is scheduled to be resolved for the next release (3.3.0-14), so hopefully we will see a resolution to try sooner than later.
