5. Getting Help

If you need help with OJS, there are several resources at your disposal.

The Open Journal Systems platform has a help document that is contextually embedded within itself, with the relevant pages displayed depending on the page you are currently viewing. You can find this context-senstive help by clicking the Journal Help link (typically located on the right navigation bar). You can also view the help document at http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/demo/present/index.php/index/help/.

You will also find relevant documentation on our OJS Documentation page, and tutorials on our Tutorials page.

Our support forum is an active place to find help with common and uncommon problems. We highly recommend you search the forum for past answers to questions, and post your own question if you can't find an answer.

Finally, our development wiki is increasingly becoming a storehouse of developer-centric information, including specialized documentation on extending OJS theme- and plugin-wise; information on translating OJS; and roadmaps and general software milestone information.
