Publishing e-books

Does OJS support the publishing of e-books as well as e-journals? IF so, how would we go about doing so?

Hi Grif,

While OJS doesn't have any special provisions for publishing e-books, some users have used it anyway with some success. Simply submit each chapter as a separate article and, if desired, use sections to organize the chapters into parts; publish the e-book as a single issue. You may need to change some of the terminology in OJS if you're concerned about the word "Journal" appearing; this will involve modifying locale/en_US/locale.xml (for English).
