OJS version 2.0 planning?

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.

OJS version 2.0 planning?

Postby rsshaw » Fri Feb 25, 2005 2:54 pm

Is it possible to give an idea of when OJS version 2 might become available? This would be helpful in planning how we approach publishing a new journal (e.g. based on which version, how much effort to invest in customizing ver 1.x, etc.)

How compatible is version 2.0 expected to be with 1.x? Is migration of an existing 1.x journal expected to be easy, somewhat hard, definitely difficult, ...?

Thanks for your insights.

I am reluctant to give any firm release date. The current status of the project is that it is close to functionally complete and undergoing some initial testing.

Support for migrating 1.x content will not be included in the first 2.0 release. It will be the highest priority for the first follow-up release.
