Some of our journals prefer to receive all manuscript via email and not via the submission option in OJS. Is it possible to remove that functions from the settings, so it won’t show up on the UI? See the following page:
They want to keep the access to make a registration as a reader
I think if you disable author self-registration, users won’t be able to see the option to submit. Some of the default language would need to be changed so as not to suggest that submissions are open, but OTOH I think those are in journal setup.

I am not sure if the self-register setting should be regarded as a setting that controls submissions. What if a journal wants to allow registrations to reader role but does not want to allow submissions through the system?
Although I’ve disabled author self-registration but enabled reader self-registration there’s still a problem, cause when you login as reader and go to ‘View Profile’ you’ll see the New Submission link in the left menu. Although you only have the reader role, you’re still able to make a new submission. That was not the intention, I guess.
