How to Remove OJS Email Notification?

In general, email notifications are an important aspect of an OJS. This notification usually contains notifications of various activities in the journal. Examples of incoming email notifications such as new announcements, new published issues, password reset confirmation, and so on. Some users who usually receive email notifications include authors, editors, reviewers, and several other roles.

However, under certain conditions, we don’t want email notifications from OJS to arrive in our email inbox. There are several reasons why we don’t want email notifications from OJS, such as we feel disturbed by incoming notifications, or there are other emails that are considered more important.

In this article, we will explain how to remove email notifications from OJS. Please listen carefully.

OJS Email Workflow

In an OJS platform we will find notification and email features. This feature is very useful for a writer or journal manager. This email notification will not be sent or received randomly to each user’s email, but has a certain workflow. Every email notification that is sent is the result of a certain series of activities, which triggers the sending of an email notification to other users. Therefore it is very important for a journal manager or user to understand what activities can trigger the sending of an email notification.
