By-passing Review process / customizing workflow

Postby mikael » Wed Jun 22, 2005 12:52 am

Hi all

OJS is a great system I really like the detail of the software and the professional feel of the system. But I have difficulties with the very detailed work flow for review and editing, I'm helping a printed journal to get online and they have their own review system and would like to keep it. This is why I would like to know if there is any way of by-passing the review work flow e.g. that the "editor" can just upload the final peer-reviewed articles.

I general I would very much like to be able to customize the workflow. If no one else has dealt with this I guess I'll have to talk our IT-guys into some OJS developing ;)

Thanks for a great piece of software!

You do not have to complete the review process; you can go straight to layout editing if you like.

Hi thanks for the quick reply.

After a bit of messing about with the OJS I too found that I could just go streight to the layout editing. But it still doesn't seem quite effective enough if you have to up load a lot of digitized back issues into OJS that forinstance haven't got metadata that could be importet to OJS. In that case it would still make a lot of sense that the editor could just upload and type in the metadata in on go.

There must be someone else who have had to deal with the same issue?? Otherwise I will look into this matter with a php colleague from our IT-deparment soon - so if we find a neat sollution - we will of course share with the rest of you :)

Best Mikael

The XML import tools that will be included in the next release of OJS 2 will be the most effective approach for bulk importing of back issues.

I am also new to OJS. I setup a site with OJS 2.02 . I tried to transfer my old files with importing XML without any succes. Therefore I decided to use the second method. But I cannot go directly to layout editing section.
Can anyone explain me the way?

See http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=580 for a list of the steps that must be taken to publish an article using the Author's Submission process.

Note that the XML import/export tools are available in the current release of OJS.
