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.

How to change the volume of a publication

Postby Borja » Mon Aug 30, 2004 10:48 am

Hi,
I have just completed a previously published issue by introducing authors manually (I have later figured out the xmlimport script :( ).
This is issue is Vol 1 Issue 1 2003, as our journal had just one issue in 2003, I need to go to Vol. 2 Issue 1 2004 to continue introducing articles, but I can not find how to do it.
In the Table of Contents, the drop-down menu says that there are not Previously Published Issues (It does not appear anything under this category of the drop-down menu), It also says that Current Live Issue is Vol. 1, No. 1 (2003), and finally says that issues 2, 3, 4 , 5 are expected as Future Issues (I do not know why).
What I need to do is to find the way to add new articles to Vol. 2, No. 1, 2004. Although, I now know that this could be accomplished with the xmlimport script, I would later face the same problem when trying to change to Vol 3. Issue 1 2005.

One last question, correct me if i'm wrong: the only place to set the journal frecuency of publication is in Setup, Step 4, where it says Frecuency of Publication Policy Statment. Then, how should i do if the journal has changed the frecuency from 1 issue per year to 4 issues per year?

I know this is a long, complex inquiry... Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Borja

You can simply select the next "future issue" and reset the volume, number, and year for that issue to the desired values.

I don't quite follow the question, but the contents of that field are only used under About the Journal, so if it is import for journal to note the change in frequency I assume you could just note that in the field.
