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.

How to change content of 'Current Issue' page?

Postby jamglas » Wed Nov 09, 2011 7:03 am

I am an editor and we use OJS for all the pre-publication stages – submission, review etc, but not from proof readingonwards. However, because the journal is published jointly with our professional society and a publishing house, we do not actually publish it online using OJS.

So, can you please tell me how to edit the page, which appears under ‘current issue’. It displays a page showing the following ‘This journal has not published any issues. ISSN: 1743-5234’ . I have used the system very successfully for over a year, but I can’t figure out a way to change this. Ideally I would like to include an image and text.

Can you please advise – preferably without having to go into the HTML code :?

Hello jamglas,

You could publish a "dummy" issue, with the cover and an Editorial (could just be the "abstract"), with the URL to it's online location or, if you don't publish online at all, possibly add information on how to acquire the issue.

Yes, thanks Ramon, it's more trouble than I had hoped for, but good suggestion!

Hi Jamglass,

Additionally, more recent versions of OJS have an option to remove the current/archives links by choosing "OJS will not be used to publish the journal's contents online" in Journal Setup Step 4.1.

Cheers,
James

Thanks James,

That option does not appear on my set up pages - so must be using and earlier version. Anyway, thanks for reply - Ramon's answer helped and I set up a 'fake' issue using the journal cover - looks better than appearing not to have published any issues.

Hi James,

I don't know if that's because I miss anything or it's a bug, but but the link "Current Issue" is still there after I checked "OJS will not be used to publish the journal's contents online". So it seems that the link can't be removed.
