OJS: Settings -> Website and Administration menus only for Journal Manager

Versión: OJS

I’ve been searching all over the forum and some internet resources with no results.

I need to know if there is any way to make the journal manager user the only one that can have in his dashboard “Administration” and “Website” menus (in Settings).

Because, the journal editor role can also “touch” these menus, and I don’t want that.

Can you please tell me if there is a way to do this?

thanks you!


Hi @Orego,

There is currently an open issue exploring this topic: Have option to restrict Editor access to Settings · Issue #5504 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub

However, specific changes and work have not yet been assigned to a release.

I totally agree. I think it is important to be able to separate the role of editor from the role of manager in some cases.
