Move submission back to review stage

In OJS 3.2 how would I move a submission back down to the review stage that was accidentally accepted and moved to be ready for publication.

I have tried adjusting the submissions.stage value but that didn’t seem to do anything.


Hi @jhennig,

This isn’t feasible in OJS 3.2 (or even in the latest 3.3), so far as I know. You may, however, be able to initiate a new round of review though? Reverting to a previous stage in the workflow is being considered for future improvements though in later versions of OJS (see here: the possibility to "back out" of a stage (e.g. review, copyediting, production, etc.) in OJS3 · Issue #2890 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub & here: Improve workflow for making an editorial decision · Issue #7265 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub)

Best regards,
