Editorial Board Overlap in Different Journals

I am managing 5 journals and there are a few users who serve on multiple review boards. For example, one person is associate editor of one journal and main editor of another. I can’t add him to multiple journal roles with only one email address. What do I do when people serve on more than one journal? Do they have to use different email addresses to get around this issue? Thanks.

Hi @trey1111,

Godo one! In the OJS2 there was an option to ‘Enroll existing user’ to the new journal. I just checked and I can’t find it in the OJS3.

There is a similar function in OJS 3. Go to Users & Roles and click Search. Underneath the search field there is a checkbox “Include users with no roles in this journal.”

If you check the checkbox the search will include users on the same installation who are enrolled on other journals.

Best wishes,

Thank you. I was able to find the user and update their roles that way.
