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.

Not sure how exactly to describe what I'm trying to do. But I'll try my best. In the good old print world many people are doing e-pub a head of print.

SInce OJS our journal is electronic is there anyway to do a similar thing but on the article level so publish select articles before the actual issue is published?

Hi Phil,

I think I understand what you're getting at -- and will do my best to answer. Every article that you publish has to be assigned to an issue, so there is no way to just publish an individual article without giving it a home in a particular issue. What you can do, however, is create an issue -- that is, "publish" an issue without any articles -- and then add articles to it one at a time. As each article is ready, you will assign it to the current issue (rather than to a future issue as you would normally do if you're publishing the entire thing in one go). That particular issue of the journal will be built up article by article, in other words, giving you the flexibility in publication timelines that it sounds like you're looking for.

Hope this helps.
