OCS for Conference Proceedings

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

OCS for Conference Proceedings

Postby djsmith » Tue Nov 12, 2013 2:03 pm

We are a professional association that holds a conference once every two years. We have conference proceedings from the past that we would like to be made available to the public. Can OCS be used as a conference proceedings archive? We have been looking at digital repositories (e.g. DSpace) and OJS. We might be interested in OCS as a future conference management tool but we want to make sure that we can use it as a repository for our proceedings.

Hi djsmith,

OCS is intended to continue to host conference proceedings after a conference event has concluded; it's probably not as feature-risk as a dedicated repository application. Depending on your requirements, it may be sufficient.
