Not all authors "indexed"

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.

Not all authors "indexed"

I have been testing the OJS software over the last couple of days and I'm mystified as to why not all authors get "indexed" by the software.

Hopefully there's an explanation...

Maybe you do not have the "Added to an Author Index" option selected for some sections?

Hi Kevin,

I checked this out and I have selected the "Added to an Author Index" option. Any more suggestions?



Authors not indexed

dear Guest,

Usually the author is indexed automatically when the article is published. You may be using another login name to make the publication for that author, and then entering the author information there.

If you're doing so, you will need to update the database with the correct author code in tblauthorstoarticles. You will need the author id from tblusers and the article id from tblarticles.

If you're login in the system as the author that should not occur, as version 1.1.8 adds co-authors to the user list.
