Possible not to require abstract as part of article metadata in OJS

How can I turn off the requirement to include an abstract for submissions? I work on a conference proceedings publication that publishes via OJS. We’ve just upgraded from a very old version to 3.1.2 and I can’t find a settings option that allows me to elect not to require an abstract from authors.

Hi @PESjoyce,

Have you checked: Settings-Journal-Sections?

Thank you so much. I’m still getting my feel around the new version, and it didn’t occur to me to check the edit options there. I found it, and I really appreciate the help.

Best wishes, Joyce
