Changes to indexing metadata

Postby vgabler » Mon Feb 14, 2011 2:58 pm


In ojs2.3.4.0, if you change what you have entered for your copyright in section 3.2 in Setup, it automatically changes the copyright information in the indexing metadata for already published articles. However, the copyright info for those articles should remain the same because the former copyright is what the author agreed to during submission and does not change. Can you either set it so that the copyright doesn't update in the metadata or make it an option in the Setup section? I can't see anyone wanting this to update for already published articles.

All best,

Vanessa Gabler
