“Publish Notify” mail is not sent

  • Application Version - e.g., OJS 3.1.2

  • Description of issue: Each time a journal on our OJS (https://revistas.unc.edu.ar/) publishes a new issue, it sends a notification which is as follows:

You have a new notification from XXX:
An issue has been published.
Link: https://revistas.unc.edu.ar/index.php/xxxxxx

It’s perfect but it doesn’t send the “Publish Notify” email that would be next:


{$contextName} has just published its latest issue at {$contextUrl}. We invite you to review the Table of Contents here and then visit our web site to review articles and items of interest.

Thanks for the continuing interest in our work,{$editorialContactSignature}

My question is: This email when and how is it sent? because it is not done automatically when a new issue is published…

Hi @didoemilio,

See When publishing new issue, PUBLISH_NOTIFY template not used · Issue #3646 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub for more information on this…

Ok. But how and where this email is sent, because when I configure “Publish Notify” it says the following:

“This email is sent to registered readers via the “Notify Users” link in the Editor’s User Home. It notifies readers of a new issue and invites them to visit the journal at a supplied URL.”

But, where is the function “Notify Users” link in the Editor’s User Home?, I can’t find it…
