Wishlist Item Detailed requirements Priority Complexity (Low, Medium, High) Action
OJS: Make importing content easier Quick Submit plugin, Expedited Submission Process, and XML importing currently exist. We'd need some detailed specifications on what a better method would look like. 3 requests H Let us know if the existing tools will meet your needs. If not, send us the details of what would make it better for you.
OJS: Massive archival entry Simplified web interface and workflow to input metadata for backfiles. UPatras had implement a previous version not integrated to OJS. Probably need to merge issue with aforementioned (quick submit plugin) 1 request M Same as above.
OJS: Some discipline specific issues regarding reviewing and review forms that are not currently well captured in the software. More information required 2 requests ? If you could send us more details, we could investigate further for you.
OJS: Create a third prefix field for author names, like ‘van Dongen’ or ‘de Jong’. 1 request L We're currently working on making the author names more flexible, so watch for changes in an upcoming release. If you need something like this sooner and have some programming resources, we could guide you on how to make a plugin for this.
OJS: Scientific character recognition When uploading some content (e.g., abstract text) certain elements of the text are not always recognised, particularly related to scientific symbols. Where this has happened, I need to enter html code for the required symbol into the metadata for it to work. 1 request ? JM: Would the MathJax plugin suffice? http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=6954. Should eventually be added to main OJS package.

If you could send us more details on the elements that aren't being recognized, we could investigate further. It would be worth posting this on the main PKP support forum.

OJS: Allow italics in title field without having to use explicit html codes that will show in the title in places you do not want them to. 1 request ? You can follow this bugzilla entry to watch the progress of this one: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6759
