Transferring conference users/authora to journal reviewers

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

I need to take about 120 conference users in OCS - names and emails and where relevant titles of papers and move them across to an OJS to serve as potential reviewers. How do I do this? The export nlm film is just not very useful here

Hi ahjpkp,

You can use the Export Users plugin, available from the Conference Manager's User Home page, to export users, and subsequently use the Export Articles & Issues plugin to do the same for presentations. Please note that you may have to edit the resulting XML so that it's compliant with what OJS' import/export plugins expect.
