"In Press" issue/section

Postby pierredv » Wed Mar 01, 2006 9:50 am

Hi Alec

I would like to publish articles as they are accepted in a special "in press" section, untill they are actually published in print, and then move them to their correct issue. I thought about creating a special menu item in die top horisontal menu bar linking to the 'in press" issue.

I have created a special "in press" issue. The problem with that is if I publish the issue, it becomes the current issue, which I dont want. Is there any way I can easily modify the publication date of the "in press" issue (without going into the coding?)

Alternatively I though about creating a "In Press" section in each journal from now on - and on a monthly basis add the accepted (but not yet published) manuscripts of that month to that section - and remove them later as they are published.

Any advice - is there another more elegant way?

Hi Pierre,

You'll need to update the current issue in the database. Use the following SQL statements:
Code: Select all
UPDATE issues SET current = 0;
UPDATE issues SET current=1 WHERE issue_id = [ID of real current issue here];

I'd suggest enabling custom issue identifers in the journal setup and assigning an issue ID of "inpress" to the in-press issue; this way, you can link to the issue using a URL like http://www.myjournal.com/index.php/issue/view/inpress (rather than hard-coding an issue ID).

Hi Alec

I just want to clarify:

1. The updating of the current issue in the database has to take place *after* I have published the "in press" issue?
2. What happens thereafter to the order of issues, when I publish new issues in future?
3. Where will the "in press" issue fit in the order after I have done all this?

Hi Pierre,

Whenever you publish a new issue in OJS, it's automatically set to be the current issue. You'll need to update the current issue after you've published the "in-press" issue.

On the "Archives" page, issues are ordered as follows: the current issue is always first, and then issues are listed in descending order of date published (most recent first).
