Manage your journal's users, assign them to roles, and create or edit existing roles. You can find the Users and Roles menu on the left-sidebar.
Journal Managers can view a list of all users in the journal. Add users, disable a user, email a user, edit their profile, or delete them completely. The easiest way to find a user is to use the search buttonh by name or role.
User roles govern who can access what in the editorial worfklow. A flexible user role system is provided so that you can tailor the roles to your needs. On the Roles tab, you'll see a list of default roles created by the system. There are many roles, and most journals won't need all of them. Feel free to delete roles you won't use in your workflow. You can edit or remove existing roles or add new roles. All roles are given one of a few permission levels which allow them to perform various actions in the system:
In addition to the permission levels, you can restrict some roles to particular stages of the Editorial Workflow. This is useful for professional assistants such as copy editors or layout managers who may assist during one or two stages of the workflow.
