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.

"Articles in Press"

We have a journal that needs to publish an "Articles in Press" series, which is for articles that have gone through peer review but which do not yet have a series they can be assigned to. We are thinking of supporting this by (mis)using the volume and issue numbering, and assigning these publications to Volume 0 Issue 0, but I'm wondering if others have handled this more elegantly.

Our journal also publishes articles in press. We just use issue with the title Articles in Press, with volume and issue numbers 0 and current year. I remove these "zeros" (i.e. issue data) from metadata sent to CrossRef for example. I set this issue as current one. Maybe it would be also suitable to change CURRENT header in the menu to IN PRESS then.

Thanks for this. We're hoping to avoid the "0" as we have some journals that actually use "O" for their Issue and Volume numbers, but it's good to hear of an example of how someone is doing this.
