I've been reviewing some journals using OJS and I see they have incorporated into their design the option to view the history or the journal file as a block to the left or right. Here are a couple of examples:

Journal of Medical Internet Research
Psychological Therapy

My question is whether this plugin or modification is available for users of OJS?

Thank you!

Hi Andrés,

This is probably custom work done by the journal. I think what they've done is modify the 'navigation' block plugin to include a list of issues. It wouldn't be terribly complicated to do - you'd basically be using the IssueDAO to fetch a list of issues like the current archive page does, and then generate a list.

It probably works best for journals with shorter lists of issues, though. I'm not sure how it would look for journals with a huge archive.
