Dublicate papers

Hi,

Is there anyway to find out if there are duplicate entries in OJS. example: we had an author B submit a paper that is the exact copy of the paper submitted by author A 6 months ago.

Hi kennymatthew,

How would you disambiguate?

I am just asking if there was a feature in OJS that I didnt know of to find out at least if someone puts in the same title for different papers.

Hi kennymatthew,

No, not at the moment. It's not a widely reported problem -- yours is the first, I think -- but if we start to hear requests for it we'll consider it.
