Description James MacGregor 2011-07-29 14:56:00 PDT
The citation_date date order is currently DD/MM/YYYY, rather than YYYY/MM/DD (which is easier to parse in other parts of the world, and the default way we order it elsewhere in article metadata, etc.). It should be changed.

NB: this is the citation_date metadata tag embedded in an article's page source. View http://www.globalhealthaction.net/index.php/gha/article/viewArticle/5724 for an example. This is still the default order in OJS 2.3.6 onwards.
