Sending email all users or reviewers in ojs 3.02


#1

I would like to send an email to reviewers.
Is it possible to send an announcement through email to all the enrolled users or reviwers?

Hi Gökmen,

Just to clarify, do you want to send an e-mail to all reviewers registered to a journal or all reviewers assigned to a particular submission?

Thanks,

Hi Amanda,

Thanks for your reply.
I want to send an e-mail to all reviewers registered to the journal.

Thnaks again

Hi Gökmen,

In OJS 2.x it is possible to send an e-mail to multiple users in a particular roles from the enrolled users page or by using the “notify users” function. However, I’m sorry to say this functionality is not available in OJS 3.02. There are plans to include it in a future release but I am not sure of the timeline.

Is there a workaround, such as obtaining emails from the database? We were counting on an end of year appeal!

Hi @reflections,

Do you want to send a message to all users? If so, I believe you can make an announcement and then all users will receive a notification of the announcement. It will also appear as an announcement on your site. Otherwise you can use a tool like PHP MyAdmin to export user data into a spreadsheet and then another tool, such as Mailchimp, to send out the message.

Hi,
Thank you for your respond. Yes, I want to send the message to all users. However, I have not found any solution yet.
I will try your suggestions.

Hi, I would like to add my voice to a call for the ability to email all users by role and all users. This is an important need for journal admin. Using announcements to do this is unsatisfactory, because the announcement becomes public on the website - even if for a day.

I already published the winter issue of our journal with OJS and the initial announcement of the publication didn’t go out to all registered users. How can I notify them of the publication of this issue now? From what I can tell, using the announcement section doesn’t work because they appear on the journal site per se.

Thanks
