public availability of OSC conference papers

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.

public availability of OSC conference papers

I am a member of the LOC for a conference, responsible for the web management, and I read in your documentation that the papers (or only keywords?) will be publicly available, in the conference website and/or in other sites, “OCS in an Hour”, pp29-30, p38, p87.
We are planning to publish the papers in a special issue of our Journal, therefore there may be a conflict of copyright if the papers become publicly available.
Can you please inform me if we can choose for the papers to be available only to the conference registered members, and to have the papers stored only in our website?
What about the keywords?
Thank you

Hi lmachado,

You don't have to publish papers if you don't want to, and if you do publish them online you can set it so that only registered users have access to the papers themselves. You can see all access options by logging in as a Conference Manager and from your user home choosing Website Management -> Step 1.5.
