Supplementary Files - linking to paper

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.

Supplementary Files - linking to paper

In our next issue there will be, for the first time, a statistics tutorial, which wants to be able to refer readers to a dataset, to be downloadable as an Excel Spreadsheet. As written, there is a reference in the tutorial to a URL for the dataset.

However, having uploaded them both by the 'speedy' route, and they have gone directly into the Layout section of the Editing page, I have realised that I am still none the wiser how the supplementary material will be accessed by a reader of the tutorial, so I don't know how to amend the text of the tutorial appropriately to refer to this or put in a hyperlink. When I open the supplementary file I don't get a URL I can put in the text of the tutorial, just the internal number assigned by the website.

Help please - I don't know what to do next, as I have not used or seen any type of supplementary file in an online journal before, and we are supposed to be publishing next week!

Thanks and good wishes

Hi Janer,

If you have enabled the Reading Tools, there will be a link to the supplementary file(s) in the RT sidebar. Alternatively, you can link directly to the supplementary file (eg. in an HTML galley) by following these instructions: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2917.
