Once the "Create New Role" button in the top right corner of the "Current Roles" box is selected, a popup window will provide the form necessary to create a new role for your journal. Initally, all that is required for the new role is the Permission Level, Role Name, and Role Abbreviation. The permission level is the most essential decision when creating this new role, as it will dictate the ability of a user with this role to potnetially alter the journal site, complete various tasks, and generally navigate OJS 3 through your journal. The permission level can NOT be altered once the role is create and will be locked unless the role is deleted and a new one created in its place. 


Remeber that only journal managers will be able to edit, create, or remove roles for your journal- but you can always assign the journal manager role a role with journal manager-level permissions to mulitple users. To see how this is done, check out the Assign User Roles section of our Users page.
