article published date - metadata - where does it show up?

Postby jlaherty » Mon Apr 15, 2013 10:21 am

HI,
We're running OJS 2.3.6.0 and we can now place a published date on each article - which is really wonderful given that some of our journals publish as they finish editing content. But even once I record the date, I can't see where that helpful bit of info shows up to readers of the journal. I also can't see how to take advantage of the article published date in arranging tables of content.

Could you please let us know what the intent of this new metadata is?

Many thanks,
Jennifer Laherty

Hi Jennifer,

The article publication date feeds many external services, e.g. Google Scholar. I don't believe it's published to readers -- that would take a simple template modification -- but if you view the source of an article page, you'll see many meta tags informing crawlers about various pieces of metadata.

Cool - I think this is something we'll address locally.
Many thanks!
