When the author uploads his article he can choose in which section he wants it to be found. One of our most downloaded journals would like to give the author a second opportunity namely to choose an editor too
Interesting. I don’t think there’s any way to do this with OJS out of the box, but here are a couple of options of how you could incorporate this:
There is a comments to the Editor box as part of the submission process - you could encourage authors to include the editors’ name there.
There is the requirement checklist that you can edit in Workflow - Submission - Checklist:
You could potentially edit this list to include a selection list for the author’s chosen editor. It’s not exactly in line with “Submission requirement” and you’d have to keep it updated, but it could potentially work.
These are just a few suggestions - and use OJS 3.3 (I’m not sure what version you’re using [in the future please include this information in your posts]). They’re not ideal, but may work for your use case. There may be potential to customize the submission process more in future versions of OJS.
