OJS 3 is Here!
The Public Knowledge Project is pleased to announce the release of OJS 3.
This is the most comprehensive software upgrade since we moved from OJS 1.0 to 2.0 way back in 2005. It incorporates a decade of feedback from our users on the community forum, through usability testing, and through thousands of conversations, feature requests, and helpful critiques.
As we approach the milestone of having 10,000 journals actively using OJS as their publishing platform, we believe this new release will significantly enhance their productivity and ease of use, and provide a modern foundation for innovation in online publishing. Check out a summary of the new features here.
For a more detailed overview of what you’ll find in OJS 3, we have published a new guide, Learning OJS 3, where you will find step-by-step instructions for configuring and using this new version. We’re still building out some of the chapters, but it will give you a good idea of how to use the new system.
You can visit this simple demonstration journal we’ve put together to get a sense of how OJS 3 differs from OJS 2.
We’ve also put up a new testdrive journal for you to experiment with, available on the PKP website.
We are also running a free webinar on OJS 3 on Wednesday, September 7 at 9am Pacific Time. You are welcome to attend, and can register here.
