This is to notify the people in PKP that we are forced to backtrack from OJS 3 and use instead of our old OJS 2.
Some of the reasons:
- No article id is displayed.
- Coauthors are not copied in emails.
- There is no clarity that emails are actually sent. Apparently, authors only receive notifications and not proper emails.
- When inside a submission, you lose sight of the article section that manuscript was submitted to.
- The system does not id uploaded files.
- Authors cannot upload more files after submission (possible and desirable in OJS2).
- No unsubmit option.
- No send to draft option.
- When creating a user, no confirmation that user was actually created.
- And a long list of horrible, horrible problems.
I posted at least two requested features and no answer from PKP.
