Open Journal Systems Help


The Editor oversees the entire editorial and publishing process. The Editor, working with the Journal Manager, typically establishes the policies and procedures for the journal, which are entered in Setup. In the Editorial Process, the Editor assigns submissions to the Section Editors to see through Submission Review and Submission Editing. The Editor keeps an eye on the submission's progress and assists with any difficulties. Once review is completed, the Editor typically sees the submission through the Editing process (including copyediting, layout, and proofreading) although in some journals this remains the responsibility of the Section Editor in charge of the submission's Review process. The Editor also schedules submissions for publication, arranges the Table of Contents and publishes the issue as part of the Publishing Process. The Editor can restore archived submissions to the active In Review or In Editing lists as outlined in Archives.
