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.

reviewing interest from a thesaurus

Dear PkP team,

We are trying to adapt the OJS to our Journal and we are founding some problems that probably others have solved before. We search into this forum but we didn't found them.

One is related with the reviewing interest for editors or reviewers. We have a thesaurus with a hierarchical structure on academic interest of our editors and reviewers that we should have in the new system.

So, the questions is: Could we use a theaurus as source for fill and search the reviewers' interest?

Thanks in advance,

Hi, Luis,

To my knowledge, there is not a way to define reviewing interest terms or load a thesaurus into OJS. Reviewing interests are selected by whomever creates the user's profile with the role of reviewer, or later the reviewer can return to edit his or her profile to select certain reviewing interests. However, you could include this thesaurus in the Review Policy page (populated by text entered in the Setup section of the Journal Management pages), or you could link out to such a thesaurus created as as Static Page from the Review Policy or elsewhere. This wouldn't force reviewers to adhere to distinct reviewing interest terms by having them validated upon entry, but it would serve as a guide for them while selecting their reviewer interests.

If I misunderstood your question or my answer was not helpful, please feel free to reply with more information.

All best,
Vanessa Gabler
