    I think the draft has covered all important issues to develop open access platform. I have work with OJS for almost 7 years and found it as an amazing platform. I suggest having comprehensive research regarding user experience, especially in maintaining system. I found that many users have difficulties in managing the user, especially for deleting users. The other problem including updating system which may quite difficult for some users. I think it will be better to provide simpler updating process. I also support PKP to have collaboration with universities and organizations to contribute in developing open access platform for publishing. Thank you for your care of us, especially to get us involve in PKP strategic draft.

  2. Hello all,

    I have no comments to make on the document, except congratulate everyone that participated in developing it. Although I read it pretty quickly, I noticed that everything is being covered. What is most striking in this version is the attention to the next generation and retention plans. I’ve been working/using with PKP software (mainly OJS) since June 2003 and long term maintenance is still a critical point of any online system. It needs to be monitored, checked, rechecked, validated, backed-up, upgraded, customized and improved constantly, and everything in the document points exactly to that end.
    Congratulations and a enormous thank you to PKP and its collaborators and partners for providing the community with such quality software, but, most of all, thank you for the concern and care you have with the user community.
