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.

I have published current issues of my journal but would like to go back now and add in some of my past issues. How can I create archived (older) volumes?


Publishing Previous Issues

There are a couple of ways to go about that...

You may want to try the xmlimport feature, where you would have to create a rather complicated XML file for each issue, and run the xmlimport.php file to update your database.

You may also try to use the system to publish previous issues but you would have to login as the author of each article, and perform all author steps, then either select an issue and change the numbering, or create a previous issue manually in the database for you. You MUST login as the author because the system uses the logged user's id, or you will have to manually change the id code which is rather boring to do.

I hope the PKP team will allow the Editorial Team to possess total permissions for publishing, which would allow them to publish for an author, as well as fix the Metadata area, where we cannot add forgotten co-authors.
