Where to add front matter prior to "Publish Issue"?

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.

Where to add front matter prior to "Publish Issue"?

Greetings, Kind Folks --

We are training a new Production Editor and preparing her first issue -- there's one matter that we haven't been able to figure out: how/where do we add the editorial front matter for an issue before we publish the issue? i.e., the cover, ads, masthead, and table of contents? Is there a place where it gets added along with articles?

I don't mean the TOC that appears in the OJS; rather, I am referring to the resulting PDF version -- http://www.communityliteracy.org/files/issue5.2.pdf

Thanks so much, in advance!

Best,
Michael

Hi Michael,

I think what you need to do to achieve this is to create a new Section for your journal (called "Front Matter" or whatever you like) as described on this page: http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/docs/userguide/2. ... tions.html

Then you would upload the front matter files and assign them to that section.

Hope that helps,
Barbara
