  • Check the "Show role title in contributor list" to show anyone with this role in the contributor list (e.g., the author list).
  • Check "Allow users self-registration" to allow users to self-register in this role. Authors and Reviewers are good candidates for self-registration. You would definitely NOT want to allow users to self-register as Journal Managers or Editors.
  • The third option is useful for guest editors or possibly section editors, depending upon your preferred workflow and authority chain.


  • Finally, the last option will give this role the ability to edit publication metadata (such as title, abstract, authors, etc.) This can be particularly useful for editors involved in prepping for publication.
