By default, Open Journal Systems is installed with a very simple, functional user interface. This includes a top header, navigation bar, navigation blocks to the right, and a main content block in the middle of the page.

You can see from the screenshot that the user functions now exist from your profile menu at the top right of the screen [1]. This takes the managerial content in OJS 3.x away from general user view. Side bar information is clearly broken out [2], as well as your top navigation bar with collapsible menus for the “About” functions [3]. Like OJS 2.x, each article has a linked title for viewing object metadata and abstracts, and galleys are now clearly labeled below the titles with clearer logos [4].

Unregistered visitors to a journal can normally register as a Reader, Author, and/or Reviewer. Journal Managers are able to remove the ability for visitors to self-register, in which case a notice will appear stating that registration is currently closed (see Journal Settings), but Journal Managers can always register users at any time, and for any role.

To register with a journal, click the Register link on the upper right corner.

This will open the Registration Form for you to complete with all required information.

 

All fields with an asterisk (First Name, Last Name, Affiliation, Country, Email, Username, Password, Repeat Password) are mandatory. If the journal is multilingual, you will need to select your preferred language.

You will be automatically registered as a Reader and an Author [1].

In compliance with GDPR, the new OJS 3.x registration form require you to agree to the terms of the privacy policy and consent to opt-in to the newsletter upon registration [2].

You will be given the option to register as a Reviewer as well [3].

Important: You will not be able to self-register for an Editorial Role (e.g., Editor, Section Editor, Copyeditor, Layout Editor, Proofreader, or Journal Manager). If you need to be enrolled at that level, contact a current Journal Manager or Site Administrator.
