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.

To publish an issue, the first step is to ensure that submissions have been accepted and edited. After the final step of proofreading, the submission is sent to the Scehduling Queue, using a button on the bottom of the Editing page for the submission.

Once a submission is in the Scheduling Queue, it can be assigned to an issue by going through Publishing on the Journal Administration page. Once enough submissions have been assigned to an issue, the Table of Contents can be ordered (Journal Admin > Publishing > Table of Contents). If it is time to publish the issue, there is a button to that effect at the bottom of the Table of Contents page.
