Compose old issues without the revision system

Postby vazquezm » Tue Mar 14, 2006 11:47 am

Hi,
I have previously published issues of my journal. I have all the articles in PDFs. Now I am using OJS for the new issues.
Is there any way to upload PDFs and compose the old issues in the OJS without to pass through the revision system?.

Hi Vazquezm,

See http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=676 for information on this. The "expedite submission" feature is part of OJS 2.1, and can be used as described at http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=692.

Thanks Alec,

Ultimately I got this link but what to do with this?

Fixed in CVS. See
http://research2.csci.educ.ubc.ca/cgi-b ... 37;r2=1.38
for a patch to correct this.


Patch to correct this at:

Hi ang2el,

That's a patch file. Usually you'd apply patch files using the GNU "patch" tool, but if you're not familiar with how to use it, the quickest thing to do is probably to download a newer copy of classes/submission/editor/EditorAction.inc.php. Save the file from http://pkp.sfu.ca/cvs/cvsweb.cgi/~checkout~/ojs2/classes/submission/editor/EditorAction.inc.php?rev=1.38;content-type=application%2Fx-httpd-php and replace the existing version in your OJS installation with it.

Dear Allec

I downloaded the files and replaced it in the specified folder but I didn't see any changes....

I am so sorry for being dumb, I am novice.

What did I miss?

Thanks once again

Alec ,

I tried a lot but I couldn't get it. Could you please help me ?

Thanks in advance.

N.B. I just want to publish my old issues without undergoing submission and editorial process.

Hi ang2el,

1. If you click on "User Home", do you see an entry for "Editor" and an entry for "Author"? If not, you need to make sure you're enrolled as both (using the Journal Manager's Enrollment functions).

2. When you finish the author's submission process, you should see a link with the following text:
If this submission is in a format that is ready to be published without further review, editing, or layout work, it can be placed directly in the last stage of the Editing queue by CLICKING HERE. (Note: Only journal editors have this option for their submissions.)

Alec,

Does the patch fix a possible problem of article "ownership"?
I received an e-mail from a user that used the expedite function.
When viewing the article listing by author, the Editor is listed as author of all the articles, which also happened in OJS 1.x unless you removed the first author (the editor).
In version 2, I haven't tested thoroughly, but I don't see an option to remove the author...

I'm not sure if you've encountered this problem.

Hi Ramón,

Article "ownership" belongs to the user who submitted the article and performed the expedite. This doesn't interfere in any way with authorship -- during the submission process, the first author record will be initialized with the submitting user's information, but if that isn't accurate, the submitter is free to change it.

Alec,

Unfortunately, when using the Expedite function, if you search for the Editor who submitted all the articles appear.
Is this how it's supposed to work? Is this a control feature to know who added the articles?

If so, let me know. Could this be fixed, do that the Editor doesn't show up on a search by that author?
It's confusing, because the articles are "attached" to that user, even though he/she is not listed as an author of the article.

Hi Ramón,

Odd -- could you try running tools/rebuildSearchIndex.php to see if a re-index corrects the problem?
