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.

Importing reviewer information along with articles

We are trying to import unpublished articles, so want to establish the relationship between a given article and a reviewer in the import process if possible. Has anyone tried this?

Hi Lisa,

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

Currently the import/export tools do not support editorial elements (e.g. reviews, edit assignments, etc.), but we are currently working on plans for OJS 3.0 that include rewriting the current import/export support in a way that can later be more easily extended to editorial aspects. In the meantime, have a look at the assumptions the import/export tools make about content when it is imported: an "Accept" decision will be automatically recorded, for example, but it's still possible to work with the content's workflow data via the UI, e.g assigning reviewers etc.
