Hi there,

we run 5 journals in an OJS In Managment/Setup/Step1.5 it says:
The name of the organization publishing the journal will appear in About the Journal.

But the publisher is not displayed. Can you help me, please?

The journals can be seen here: http://www.online-journals.org. I have found a workaround for the journal iJEP: as we have created it only 6 months ago it has already the HTML text fields. I have put the publisher into the "Mailing Address" field, and so it looks as if the publisher was displayed. But for the other journals I don't have a good solution, I will have to put it in the footer, otherwise we'll loose our ISSNs.

Thank you!

I have the same problem here http://www.ias-iss.org/ojs/IAS/about. And I think this is related also to missing <registrant> tag in Crossref Export plugin: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=5279

Hi Ales,

The publisher information does actually appear, under About the Journal -> Journal Sponsorship. See http://www.ias-iss.org/ojs/IAS/about/journalSponsorship on your website for this. I can't seem to replicate the problem regarding the empty registrant tag, however -- are you exporting entire issues, or only selected articles?

Thank you James!
I tried Crossref export plugin for a single issue and multiple issues and the <registrant> tag is properly generated, so everything is ok. I've had this problem a while ago, but maybe with an older version of Crossref export plugin, I don't know that... However, the <pages><first_page>...</first_page><last_page>...</last_page></pages> tags are still missing, but that is a subject belonging to another thread.
