Create new permission levels in OJS-3

Apologies if I’m missing something, but is there a way to create new permission levels for a journal in OJS-3?

I see how new roles can be created, but they can only be assigned to pre-defined permission levels. I am looking for a way to give aspiring new editors to our journal read-only access to the publication workflow, and would like to create a new role with read-only permissions.

Is this possible at all?



Hi @rvdb,

Unfortunately not – currently the permission levels are predefined; changing that would take some coding.
