Writing about web page https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/FAQ
One of the most important attributes each registered contributor for Exchanges lodges with us is their personal email address. Currently, the journal platform can only store a single address, which means if you are coming to the end of your doctoral studies or are about to change institution it’s vitally important that you update your details at the earliest opportunity. Notably, some journal contributors prefer to use their personal, non-institutional email with Exchanges instead as their primary contact address. This is absolutely is fine, as this usually guarantees a continued line of contact outside of any changing employment circumstances. Whether you register your personal institutional or non-institutional email address with us is very much a personal choice.
But this illustrates a simple fact: if your email address isn’t up-to-date on our system, we’re won’t be able to contact you about developments with your submission, requests to participate in reviews or highlight new publishing opportunities.
Thankfully, changing your contact email address only takes a few moments:
- Log into your Exchanges account at: https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/login
- Click on your profile name in the top right-hand corner of the screen and select View Profile
- Click the Contact tab and change the address at the top of the screen
- Finally, click save to confirm
My hope is in the longer term, as the OJS platform develops, that we may be able to allow contributors to register an alternative, secondary email address. This would certainly benefit the editorial team’s work in keeping in touch with all their respective author and reviewer contributors. For now though, the message is clear, if you’re about to or have recently changed roles, make sure you’ve got the right email address registered with Exchanges!
Naturally, if you have any issues with updating your address, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
