How to allow Authors to upload their revised manuscripts?


When our Authors are attempting to upload revised manuscripts to OJS under the “Revision” section of the “Review” tab, they are being denied access to this section of OJS. They get an error message: “You don’t have access to that stage of the workflow.” We haven’t run into this problem before because we haven’t asked authors to do this before. We’ve only published 2 issues using OJS 3.1.4 and we handled revisions via email and/or uploaded them ourselves on behalf of the Authors.

I looked at the Roles and Authors only have “Submission” checked off. So, my question is - if we check off “Review” as well, will that allow the Authors to upload their own revised manuscripts? Also, would that make them able to access other Authors’ submissions?

after reveiwer sent reviews you have to click at “Request Revision”


Turned out that adding “Review” to Authors’ role fixed the problem and they can now upload their revised manuscripts.
