Putting journals in groups, categories or editions

Postby knjigor » Mon Dec 10, 2012 6:31 am

Hi all,

We are using OJS at our Faculty for about a year and it is excellent, but of course there must be a problem. Question is, is there any way to group/categorize different journals our publishing now publishes journals magazines and publications in editions and each must be in a specific group?

I have searched forum and google for answer but didn't find one.

Hello knjigor,

This feature (or part of it) is only available in the newest (still "unstable") 2.4 release.
It will allow a grouping (at least alphabetical), as well as paging and navigation (both for large lists of hosted journals, as well as long lists of issues).

Look for "Categories" in Site administration

Hi ,

I just want to ask what is the purpose in categorize? cause I go to site admin, set up the categories each journal (Multidisciplinary, Institutional & Politics). then choose Permit Journal Managers to organize journals into categories. When I go to Journal Manager, i did not saw the categories?.

Hi Darryl,

With that option enabled, Journal Managers should be able to choose which categories their journal appears in on Setup step 1.
