What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Export data on papers

Postby stephanehess » Wed May 25, 2011 2:15 am


I've been trying to find a good way of exporting the data on papers for our scheduled conference. The available export options are not ideal for various reasons.

What I would really need is a page that just summarises all the papers, together with the authors, and the paper id.

Most of our papers are still 'under review', and unfortunately that 'under review' screen only shows the surnames of the authors, and a shortened version of the paper title.

The ideal output would have the format that you get under the 'Scheduler' screen, which nicely shows the paper id, the title, and the full names for all the authors.

But the 'Scheduler' option clearly only works for papers already accepted. Is there any easy way of producing this type of output for all papers, whether accepted or under review? I had been thinking of using the xml output option, but aside from the fact that this will be in xml format which won't be easy to use for my purpose, it seems to similarly only work for accepted papers

Hi Stephane,

Have you taken a look at the papers report option available from the Conference Manager's Home Page under the Scheduled Conference -> Report link? It should have everything you need, depending on which version of OCS you are using. (For example, presentation type and review comments were only added recently: see http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6627.)
