An issue on our OJS 3.1 installation was pointed out by a reviewer - after completing their review and returning to their home page, they were then able to see the writer’s name above the paper title on “My Queue → My Assigned”.
I was able to replicate this problem on each of the 3 journals hosted on our site.
Is there any way to stop this happening? Reviewers should never be able to see the writer names, even after completing reviews.
Same problem here. OJS 3.1 installation, upgraded from 3.0.2. I checked the “double-blind” option both in the workflow page and in the reviewer invitation, and the authors’ names show up in “My Assigned” for the reviewers.
I created two users for testing, when one of our reviewers flagged the problem. I have just checked both user profiles, and they have roles Author, Reviewer, and Reader., just as the reviewer that warned me.

Author name appears to the reviewer when the submission has been attributed, both before and after he accepts. The name still appears even after the submission is archived.
Thanks @lcduarte and @marukomu. I’ve been able to reproduce this. It occurs when the reviewer also has both the Reviewer and Author roles – probably a fairly common situation. I’ve filed a critical issue to ensure this is fixed as soon as possible:
we applied this patch and authors name dissapeared (one remained :/)
Can you provide any more detail about the one that remained? What roles does the current user have on that submission? Do they have any stage assignments?
some articles are not showing its title
The submission list will look for a title in the current language. If it can’t find one, it will then look for a title in the journal’s primary language. If it can’t find that, it will return an empty string. You can see the localize function used in the submission list here:
And that’s called in the SubmissionListItem component here:
I aslo installed the latest version of OJS (3.1) and have a same problem. After uploading a file/journal and choosing double blinde option, editor is able to see my name in Submissions - My assigned. Is there any way to resolve this problem, and if there is any solution, can you please write me what exactly have to do?
