New submissions skipping the Unassigned queue

New submissions skipping the Unassigned queue.

New submissions are going into the Active queue and being assigned automatically to the Special Editor. How can I stop this occurring?

Usually, the new submissions wait in the Unassigned queue until the Editor is ready to assign a Section Editor.

Kind regards;

Hi @Noleine_Fitzallen,

I suspect that this would be due to having a section editor assigned in the section settings. This is outlined in our documentation here:

Section Editors: If you have editors enrolled in your journal, you will see them listed here and can assign one of them to the section. This means any submissions made to the section are automatically assigned to the editor, saving you from manually assigning an editor.
