PKP Roundup – May 23
Curious what the PKP team has been working on this week? The PKP Roundup gives quick updates on our latest software developments.
OCS 2.3.6 is ready for release and we will decide on a definitive date soon. It will include lots of recommended patches and new features.
Work continues on UI/UX improvements. Integration testing has been fixed.
Portico plugin released:
This plugin facilitates the transfer of journal content to the Portico digital preservation service, and can be used to deposit your journal content directly to the Portico FTP site, in a format that is ready for the Portico service to use. Portico is a community-supported preservation service that works to preserve its participants’ rapidly growing digital publications, from e-journals to e-books to other digital collections. PKP is proud to assist in this valuable endeavour, and to ensure that OJS publisher participation in the Portico service is as easy as possible.
You can find a download package on the support forum. The plugin can be installed and configured via the Journal Manager -> System Plugins interface. Support queries regarding the technical workings of the plugin can be posted in this thread. For queries about participating in the Portico service itself, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
