Crossref and DOIs

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal 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 OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS 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 OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS 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 OJS 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 OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Crossref and DOIs

Postby jpowell » Tue Feb 11, 2014 3:06 pm

A journal we are working with wants their DOI suffix to be the journal's initials and OJS article number only. We advised them to choose the first alternative in setup 1.1 and the pattern %j%a. However, the journal initials are not showing up.
1. Did we advise them incorrectly?
2. Do they need to click the reassign DOIs button?
3. We assumed the journal initials are pulled from the setup in 1.1, is that correct?

Thanks for your help,

Hi Judy,

That recommendation looks correct to me. Is this for an article that was already published? If so, once the DOI is displayed or exported for the first time, the DOI will be affixed to the article and won't change thereafter (even if the journal configuration changes). That's why there's a "Reassign DOIs" button -- use that if you want to reset (and then re-generate) DOIs, even those that may have been served up for outside use. If the journal is not yet live, go ahead and use that button.

The journal initials do come from setup 1.1.

Thanks Alec. Clicking the Reassign DOIs button did fix the problem and the suffix portrays as intended now.
