online submissions text

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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.

I apologize if there is any tutorials about this but I cannot find a way to change the "online submissions" text on "about" section.

this one :
Already have a Username/Password for -my journal name-?

Need a Username/Password?

Registration and login are required to submit items online and to check the status of current submissions.

I didn't find anything in configuration menu.

Thank you

Hi Marie,

The text that's built into OJS can be modified by finding and editing the appropriate locale file. In this case, the text is in locale/en_US/locale.xml:
Code: Select all
<message key="about.onlineSubmissions.registrationRequired">Registration and login are required to submit items online and to check the status of current submissions.</message>
For other text, look for the strings you want to change in locale/en_US/*.xml and lib/pkp/locale/en_US/*.xml; there are other files as well, but mostly for plugin content.
