Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS 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 OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS 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 OJS 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 OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

In journal we use the citation format in accordance with our internal norms. Is there a way to create new citation format for editor who is not the programmer? I would appreciate for your help.

Hi Adam,

Unfortunately, you will have to look into the code. All citation formats are generated via plugins -- each citation format plugin can be found in plugins/citationformats. You should be able to use an existing plugin to work from -- simply copy the plugin files into a new directory, and modify them so that they represent your own citation format.
