Notify readers of new content added to current issue?

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.

Notify readers of new content added to current issue?

I am working with a journal that publishes incrementally - they open up an issue for the year, and add articles to it as they are ready to publish. At the end of the year, they close the issue and start working on the next year's. It appears that reader notifications only go out when a new issue is published. In this case, readers will not be notified of most of the content that is published over the course of the year. Is there another way to set up reader notifications that is tied to the publication of new content, not just new issues? Thanks! - Melanie Schlosser, Ohio State University Libraries

Hi Melanie,

There's no built-in notification for new content that isn't tied to issue publication -- but you can use the Editor's "Notify Users" feature.
