Under Users & Roles → Site Access Options → User registration, in OJS 3.x there are two options:
- Visitors can register a user account with the journal.
- The Journal Manager will register all user accounts. Editors or Section Editors may register user accounts for reviewers.
If the second option is ticked, the message shown to candidate authors is
This journal is currently not accepting user registrations.
while we want to invite possible authors to register via our support desk.
So, we would like to have the option there for a custom message:
If you are interested in contributing to this journal, please send an email to email@example.com or
Please contact our user registration department at +31 43 1234556666
I could not find a similar request. If there is, please move this request there as a supportive message.
