The "Submissions" tab under "Workflow Settings" allows you to edit the "Submissions" page of your journal website, as well as establish submission and author guidelines. It does NOT include information on how to submit articles to the journal- check the Submission Process page for that information.

...

The first text box on the "Submissions" page under "Workflow Settings" will be home to your journal's Author Guidelines. Here you should list any and all limitations and instructions for authors interested in submitting their work. This can include recommended bibliographic/citation formats, and layout restrictions, acceptable formats for submission (such as Word, PDF, etc.), and any other information that will be essential for your authors to know about the submission process. You can also display a good amount of this information more clearly with the Submission Preparation Checklist below.

...

The Submission Preparation Checklist will appear as easy-to-read a checklist on your "Submissions" page, and should be a useful and concise guide for authors hoping to submit to your journal. OJS 3 has five default items on this checklist, but feel free to edit these items or add items that will be relevant to your journal's standards. To edit existing items, click on the blue arrow to the left of the checklist item, and then select "Edit" from the drop-down menu. To add an item, select "Add Item" from the far right corner of the box. Be sure to reorder your checklist accordingly , by utilizing the "Order" button also in the corner of the box. Selecting "Order" will allow you to drag place the items in the order sequence you wish them to appear.
