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.

User experience issue on articles without abstracts

Postby szmigieldesign » Fri Jul 18, 2014 1:28 am


during the OJS editorial training organized by my team, some users pointed out that not being able to click an article title in order to get to article page (in case of an article without abstract) was problematic. It was counter-intuitive since they first learned that article titles in TOC are clickable and were surprised that some were not.

Shouldn't it be unified?

You can actually get to an abstract-view by shortening the final text link (just remove the file id and leave the submission id). Yes, it looks kind of poor (there's no abstract after all...), but there's a title, and author (or authors), copyright information and... big, bad, full-text button - the most important element ;-)
