Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Hello all,

I couldn't think of a place to add this yet, as I wanted to discuss it first.
My suggestion is to add an AJAX search mechanism during the submission and metadata editing processes.
This way, the author would see articles submitted with the same subject, and check if the article is really fit for the journal.
I'm not really sure if it would improve the process at all, but thought to bring this up to see how the idea could be improved in order to be implemented.

I came up with this idea when thinking about using OJS as a support tool, where users could submit their issues and check with the AJAX whether there was a similar question. So, instead of adding a new item, they would comment or add to the existing one.

I don't think it would be a difficult feature to add, as the search is already implemented. All that is required is the AJAX response from the pages, which would also create a new layer of possibilities for integrating with other tools...
