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.

adding articles to back issues

Postby achaz » Wed Oct 19, 2005 7:03 am

Hi,
I am trying to set up the online version of a Journal using OJ 2.0.
I have the already published articles (starting from 1993) as pdf files and I would like to add them to the back issues I created in OJ along with Title, authors and abstracts. I read through the OJ in an hour documentation but could not find out how to do it...

Thanks for help,

best regards,
Achaz

Hello Achaz,

The best way to do this currently is using the Journal Manager's import/export feature. The "Articles & Issues Plugin" allows you to import files using an XML descriptor.

If you're familiar with XML, look at "plugins/importexport/native/native.dtd". If you've already created the issues, you'll need to create a single XML document for each issue.

Hello Achaz,

If you let us know what your email address is by sending a message to pkp-support@sfu.ca, I can send you a sample XML document. If you're not familiar with XML, however, it may seem cryptic. I suggest finding a good XML editor; XMLSpy (available from http://www.altova.com) is a popular editor for Windows.
