Forum rules
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.

OxS Improvement suggestions

Hello all,

I couldn't think of a place to add this yet, as I wanted to discuss it first.
My suggestion is to add an AJAX search mechanism during the submission and metadata editing processes.
This way, the author would see articles submitted with the same subject, and check if the article is really fit for the journal.
I'm not really sure if it would improve the process at all, but thought to bring this up to see how the idea could be improved in order to be implemented.

I came up with this idea when thinking about using OJS as a support tool, where users could submit their issues and check with the AJAX whether there was a similar question. So, instead of adding a new item, they would comment or add to the existing one.

I don't think it would be a difficult feature to add, as the search is already implemented. All that is required is the AJAX response from the pages, which would also create a new layer of possibilities for integrating with other tools...

Hello all,

Hmmm... seems no one read or cared for the previous suggestion about AJAX, so I'll throw another one here before landing on the Bugzilla.

This next one should really be implemented, as it will add improved navigation for all:

Add a NEXT article navigation mechanism in ALL pages (if not already).
Instead of having to return to the list of submissions, the NEXT link will allow the Editor/Reviewer/Author/Reader to jump to the next submission/article in line, within the category(unassigned, in review, incomplete, archived, in editing, etc)/section (articles, opinion paper, etc) being browsed.

Hi Ramon,

Keep an eye on what we're doing over here:
http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php?title= ... Web_Design

This work will be going into OMP 1.2 / OJS 3.0, which is under heavy development. We're unlikely to move that functionality back into OJS 2.x as it'll mean implementing it twice.

Also watch out for the developer blog (to be launched soon) and the PKP blog, where we keep the community up to date on how this stuff is progressing and solicit feedback on designs.

Regards,
Alec Smecher

Hello Alec,

That's great news, as always.
Keep us posted of the launch through the PKP News blog so I can sign to that feed as well.
