Multilanguage Abstract, Keywords and Title

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.

Multilanguage Abstract, Keywords and Title

Dear PKP OJS Team,

First of all: Your system is amazing! It took some time to learn how to properly use everything, but once it's done, you have a very hardcore tool! If only it was somewhat more beautiful I'd say it's perfect! Remember Apple: keep things simple and beautiful for the final user!

My question here is another: Is it possible to set the request (the obligation, I should say) for authors to provide a Title, an Abstract and Keywords in English (and other languages that might please him, on his choice)? Also, I'd like these data to be indexed just as the regular Title (título), Abstract (Resumo) and Keywords (Palavras-Chave). The problem is that I coordinate a Brazilian Undergraduate Student Law Review and almost all of our public reads and writes in Portuguese, but the International Indexes and the National Periodical Publication Evaluation Standard (WebQUALIS) from Brazil demands these in 2 languages, generally speaking of Portuguese and English.

Another minor one: Is it possible to set the obligatory request for authors to have a telephone by the time of their submission (or have a box for them to include this data, which is to update their profile and do not appear on the submission at all)?

Thanks in Advance

I am also working on multilingual publication (English and Slovenian) and have the same issue/question: Is it possible to set it somehow obligatory that authors have to specify title, abstract and keywords in two languages?

Hi folks,

Unfortunately that is not currently possible -- only the main required locale is mandatory at this point.
