Documentation: The OJS Technical Reference and the OJS API Reference are both available from the OJS Documentation page. While these are OJS-specific, the OCS codebase is similar enough to OJS they should be of help. There is also an [url=http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs_documentation[/url]OCS Documentation[/url] page with some more general documentation that might also be of interest.

Git: You can access our public Git Repository here. Comprehensive Git usage instructions are available on the wiki.

Bugzilla: You can access our Bugzilla report tracker here.

Search: You can use our Google Custom Search to search across our main website, the support forum, and Bugzilla.

Questions and discussion are welcome, but if you have a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a technical support question, try the OCS Technical Support subforum.

Hi all,

When a (track) director is also an author, he/she should not be able to see review reports about his/her own papers, nor make decisions. I have filed a bug report and included a patch. This patch blanks out the Peer Review page if the userId of the paper and the (track) director are the same. I think this is essential for fair peer review: the reviewer must be able to trust that he/she will remain anonymous. Ideally, it should not be possible to assign papers to a track director who is also the author of that paper, but failing that, I guess this patch is a step in the right direction.
