* I have installed the software successully, but I found I had to turn allow_call_time_pass_reference on to get it to work without a large number of erors. Tip: for people without access to php.ini, the required preferences can be set in .htaccess using
php_flag register_globals 1
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc 1
php_flag allow_call_time_pass_reference 1
* We are thinking of starting journals based on eprint archives. For a summary of the concept see
To get this to work with OJS would require some quite extensive modifications:
- Removing all of the parts to do with production and file handling, going directly from "accept" to "published"
- Adding standardized key word lists to each author, referee and editor and automating most of the process of editor-assignment, and simplifying referee selection.
Is this something OJS would be interested in doing themselves? Otherwise if I make modifications the software will probably diverge irretrievably from the OJS distribution.
