Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

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.

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 OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

We run more than a dozen journals on one installation of OJS, version and all the journals running on our URL stem, http://scholarworks.iu.edu/journals/index.php, show up in Google Scholar, but 2 that run on their own unique URL (though still on the same installation as all the others) do not. They are http://josotl.indiana.edu/ and http://jotlt.indiana.edu/. We're puzzled by this. Do you have any wisdom about why GS would be treating these differently? Is there something we need to do, and what - to OJS to GS?

Many thanks,

Hi Jennifer,

I can't think of any reason -- unless you have a robots.txt file excluding the site from indexing? Your meta tags appear to be accessible as usual, so all I can suggest is that maybe Google hasn't gotten around to indexing it yet.
