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.

Removing current issue

Postby cardieri » Mon Apr 22, 2013 5:31 am

Hello

We would like to add articles to the current issue as they are accepted. However, apparently there is no easy way to do that. The only way I figured out was to create a new current issue (after removing the “old” current issue) every time I have a new article to be added to the current issue. Does anyone know if this solution would work?

Thanks!

Hi,

We have several journals that are publishing articles as they are accepted and then "compiling" them into a single volume or issue one or two times per year. The way they do so is to create the Current Issue and publish it when the first article is ready. Then, each time an article is ready to be published, the action of scheduling the article for publication in the current issue on the article record's Editing page will then add that article to the current issue.

We encourage journals that do this to leave the page numbers off of the articles until the issue is closed, and when closing the issue to go back and paginate the issue. If your journal has sections, OJS will add each published article to the end of the appropriate section, so you can't truly know the order of the articles and the pagination until the issue is closed. Once you're ready to close the issue and have uploaded paginated articles, you can simply create a new issue, publish it, and start fresh with that new issue set as the current issue. The closed issue will move to the archives.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to let me know.

All best,
Vanessa Gabler

Hi, Vanessa

Thank you so much for your reply and help. This is exactly what we want to do. Thank you also for the hint regarding the page number. In fact, our journal has sections and page numbering is an issue when articles are published as they are accepted.

Thanks again!
