Forum rules
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.

OCS Users can't upload papers after submissions date

Postby iacocs » Fri Jan 27, 2012 8:50 am

Hi all,

I have a server with OCS version. In the Submission section of Setup
I configured the following items :
- Abstract followed by proposal (2 rounds of review required; first for abstract, second for proposal)
- Post abstracts once the abstract review has been completed
- Supplementary files can be submitted with abstracts and presentations

Now my conference is done so the submissions are closed as established in the
timeline. The authors should be now able to upload their proposal/papers;
when I use the Login as feature to become a user I have the link
"New Submission" on the user's home page, if I click it I get the message :
Submissions for this conference were closed on 2011-06-30

How can solve this problem ? I tried to read some threads on the forum like :

- viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7887
- viewtopic.php?f=13&t=6035
- viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4221
- viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4093&p=15830#p15830

but I don't know if they are compatible with my OCS version. I would like to
know also if there is a way to see the patches already installed in my OCS
(if this happened automaticaly at the installation) and how to install a patch
if will be needed.

Please help, thank you.

Best regards.

Hi iacos,

See viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2675&start=0#p9618 for a clear description of how OCS' submissions system works with respect to allowing authors to upload material. Note that once the "due date" has gone by, authors can no longer submit new submissions; but they can edit submissions provided that a "revisions required" decision has been assigned to them.

Let us know if you have any further questions!
