Documentation: The OJS Technical Reference and the OJS API Reference are both available from the OJS Documentation page. While these are OJS-specific, the OCS codebase is similar enough to OJS they should be of help. There is also an [url=http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs_documentation[/url]OCS Documentation[/url] page with some more general documentation that might also be of interest.

Git: You can access our public Git Repository here. Comprehensive Git usage instructions are available on the wiki.

Search: You can use our Google Custom Search to search across our main website, the support forum, and Bugzilla.

Questions and discussion are welcome, but if you have a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a technical support question, try the OCS Technical Support subforum.

integration with accounting invoicing software

Postby iluber » Fri Jun 06, 2008 6:21 am

Hello everybody: is there anyone who is planning to develop a plugin to provide some level of integration of OCS with an accounting/invoicing system ?
The objectives of such integration would be mainly to register subscription to a conference and article submissions as an order in the accounting software and , in case the order is paid on line we will register also the payment.
Of course this means also that a product list must be defined in the accounting system and retrieved by OCS or exported from OCS to the invoicing system.

We are already are evaluating the more appropriate software to be integrated.
If someone else is evaluating this possibility we could certainly share our impressions and maybe share some programming effort.

Hi iluber,

OCS 2.1, released a couple of weeks ago, ships with a payments plugin, which will accept PayPal payments or allow you to handle payments manually. It may already have some of the functionality you are looking for, and would probably be a good starting point for further development into supporting accounting systems as you have described. I don't believe that the PKP team is currently looking to actively extend the payments plugin, but we would definitely welcome community contributions towards it. And of course, if you have any development questions we'd be happy to respond there.
