Editor's Account Equivalent to Journal Manager

I want to ask why in OJS version three, the Editor account is equivalent to the Journal manager account.

Which version of OJS 3?
Role privileges are not equal in OJS
The Administrator menu does not appear in the editor.



Hi @triandi30,

Are you asking about why Editors have access to the setup area? There’s a request to exclude editors from setup filed here: Have option to restrict Editor access to Settings · Issue #5504 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub

The decision in OJS 3.x to remove the distinction between Journal Managers and Editors was taken because most users had both roles and needed to click around unnecessarily to get between features. However, that wasn’t true of all users.
