We are planning to improve our experience with OJS as a portal.
For this, unfortunately, we are planning to move our incubated journals, 13 individual OJS installations, to a single OJS installation.
I'm also planning to try to preserve all the historical data and in-process submissions, instead of using the import/export feature, as we'd loose submission in transit, logs and archived stuff.
One possible problem is that some journals are in different versions, and probably none are using the current OJS version.
Is upgrading to the latest version essential, necessary, optional?
So, if you have any clues, suggestions, ideas or instructions, that would be a great shortcut.
If otherwise impossible or impractical, please tell us so, so we can plan the export-import process with each journal individually.
