How to custom articleId format?

Postby chgtg » Thu Aug 18, 2011 1:36 am

OJS is perfect system for journal publish.

I find the articleId is 1,2,3,4......

Now I hope articleId can be a big number with journal initials-year-month-number.

Just like [journal initials]-11-08-001, then we can know something from the articleId.

But after I read the "OJSTechnicalReference.pdf", and I read some php code, I find getArticleId(), getData() and some other function is used to
do this, but I am puzzled.

So can you help me to do this?

Thank you very much!

Hi chgtg,

My apologies for the extreme delay in responding -- your post was trapped in a moderation queue we don't generally use.

It's possible to use custom identifiers in the reader's interface -- but not currently in the workflow. See Journal Setup, page 4, for the settings to enable this.
