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.

Hope and wish the best for you and your organization.

We are using OJS version 2.2.3 for our journal “International Journal of CAD/CAM (http://www.ijcc.org)”. We are having the following problem:

1. In the e-mails records (prepared e-mails) there is only one template for Editor’s decision on a paper. And that is acceptance e-mail. However, in decisions there are three options: accept, revisions required, and reject. Our question is how can we prepare templates for each decision separately and link them automatically.

Kindly let us know how this problem can be solved?

Thank you.
Kim, Boram

Hi Kim,

You may want to upgrade: OJS 2.3+ includes templates for each Editor Decision, although they are still shipped largely blank, for you to fill out personally.

Cheers,
James

Dear Sir,

We have tried to upgrade by installing “ojs-2.2.4_to_2.3.1-2(1).patch”. The files have been stored in the same directory. However, the following problem is happening and the message appears:

The file cannot be opened.
File: ojs-2.2.4_to_2.3.1-2(1).patch

---------------------------------
You should select a program that can open the file. You should select the following option.

(1) Search on-line program,
(2) Select a program from list of installed programs.
---------------------------------

Kindly let us know how this problem can be resolved?

Thanking you.

Best Regards,
Kim, Boram

Hi Kim,

You'll need some sort of patch utility to properly use the patch file. There are different utilities available for all operating systems. If you do decide to upgrade, make sure you make backups, and otherwise read the full documentation in docs/UPGRADE.

Cheers,
James
