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.

Quick quesiton about these. I am not ready to actually do this, but I am interested in understanding the concept! I am just learning this stuff.

Can I set up my journal using RSS media feeds the same way you see MSN and AOL doing this.
For example, can I set it up so that opening journal page automatically posts recent news headlines about amphibians and reptiles? Also, maybe pick up on links to other journals having peer-reviewed articles of interest?

Or, is this for sending out media feeds to be picked up by others (like MSN and AOL).

Thanks!

Hi Malcolm,

The RSS web feeds plugin is used to create RSS feeds from articles that have been published in your journal -- so, in answer to your questions, it is "for sending out media feeds to be picked up by others".

We do have a CMS (content management) plugin in the current CVS version of OJS which will allow you to do the former; that is, you can point to RSS feeds on other sites about whatever topics you like, and have them aggregated to a page on your journal. We are hoping to release this plugin with the next version of OJS.

Regards,
MJ Suhonos
