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.

Enabling site statistics

Postby okello » Sun Feb 25, 2007 8:35 am

I've finished installing ojs.

I also did configure it successfully.

It is ok in a number of ways. So far I've not experienced any problems as far functionality is concerned. However, I've not figured out how to enable site statistics in order to know the viewership of the site.

Can someone please help?

Thanks in advance.

Hi okello,

If you'd like to know how many people have read a particular article, the number of views is displayed on the submission's Editing page beside the Galley file in question. For more detailed statistics on the site usage, I'd suggest installing a server log file analysis package such as Webalizer.

For statistics on the journal itself (i.e. acceptance rates etc.) see Statistics & Reports in the Journal Manager's interface.

Hi Okello,
I installed succesfully this script for statistics:


It seems to work fine, it is less difficult to install and configure than webalizer, and creates stats pages for each OJS review.
