How do I change the default editor assignment?

I am the new editor of a journal published using OJS. When authors upload new submissions, I receive an email notification but so does the former editor. Moreover, the new submission is auto-assigned to the former editor. How do I change this?

Hi @aamaya,

What version of OJS are you using? (Please include this in your posts.)

Alec, thanks for asking, but I don’t even know how to find out the answer to your question. I know it’s not OJS3, but otherwise have no idea.

In OJS 2.x, you can find the version via:
About → About this Publishing System

Thanks, Ctgraham. I’m using

Check the assigned section editors in:
User Home → Journal Manager → Journal Sections → (select section) → Edit

Thanks! I replaced him - fingers crossed that it works. Your help is much appreciated!
