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.

Dear mohdahmed,

Please post on the correct forum.
Your question is OJS related, but posted in the OCS forum.

The OxS Software suite, developed by PKP, is Open Source and free, which means you "own" the software once you start using it.
You WILL need a server to host the web application of your interest (OJS, in this case).
You can either:
  1. Buy your own server an plug it to your institutional network, adding a DNS address and install the necessary software
  2. Hire an external hosting server, with all the base technology installed, but where you will have to install AND probably maintain the software yourself
  3. Hire PKP or other similar institution that provides specific OxS installation and support.

I believe if you search the forum you will find a few options available.
Check the PKP site for commercial support.
