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.

Inconsistent Indexing with Google Scholar

We are trying to get our journal, http://jima.imana.org, indexed to increase its visibility. To that end, I sought its inclusion in Google Scholar. To my pleasant surprise, I saw that some of our articles come up with the following search term:

Return articles published in – jima

However, most of these are from 2009, even though we have many articles from different years.

I tried to search for specific articles like this:

allintitle: full flexion author:Tarabichi

Even though the article appeared as a citation, the actual article itself did not appear.

Would you tell me what we’re doing right and wrong? We obviously would like all our content to appear in Google Scholar.
