    Hi everyone !

      Hi Stefano,
      We don’t have a list available at the moment, since we are improving our methods of getting these statistics. There has been an unexpected delay (it’s frustrating, I know), but we’re working on it. The old option we had for people to submit their journal was mostly filled with spam, so we’re trying to think of a way to combat that.


  2. This is really a good discussion and we learned a lot from this. Would you like to share how to identify a journal using OJS.

    Please, help me to understand: how this maps contains information about the number of Journals using Open Journal Systems in 1990 if the OJS was created in 2002?

    Cheers, Danyelle Silva.

      Hi Danyelle,

      That is a good question! This research is in the hands of one of my colleagues, but I think that it may be because this map shows years in which content was *published* using OJS; 1990 would mean that journals have published their back issues.

      Best regards,

  5. Hi,
    Is there a way to know the detail of the information displayed in OJS Map? For example I want to know list of journals using OJS in Indonesia, in the map we can only know “Indonesia: 555 journals”.

      Hi Happy,

      Right now we don’t have that information available, but we are still working on creating something that will enable people to see information like that.

    Estimados señores,
    nada más para comentarles que en Paraguay a la fecha aproximadamente estan utilizando OJS cerca de 10 revistas, por favor indiquenos como debemos hacer para registrar el sitio de nuestras revistas que usan OJS, gracias!

    Your map says we only got 26 OJS journals in Denmark. In fact there’s a lot more. Only here at the State and University Library in Aarhus we now got 46, in 2013 it was around 40. Perhaps five of them have stopped publishing new articles but it leaves us with around 35. That’s from the State and University Library. We got other OJS servers in Copenhagen and Aalborg too, so the figure 26 is much too low.

    • Karen Meijer-Kline says:

      Hi Niels,

      Thanks for letting us know!
      If those journals were publishing 10 articles a year in 2013 and if the installations still have the link to PKP intact (some journals remove it, it’s the ‘About this publishing system’ link) they should have been picked up, so if that didn’t happen there is probably a flaw in the system. I will let Juan know (he’s in charge of researching statistics), since he’s working on improving it.

      All best,

    Is there a list of journals that use OJS? We would like to be able to see what law journals use OJS or at least what journals use OJS and have law or legal in their journal names.

    Kind regards,

    • Karen Meijer-Kline says:

      Hi Murray,

      We’re working on making a list of the known regularly publishing OJS journals available. When it is ready we will publish it here, please stay tuned!

    I have a journal that hosted the Iraqi journals for University of Kufa in Iraq. I wish you counted on your statics. This journals was working since September 2013.



    • Karen Meijer-Kline says:

      Hi Aymen,

      Thank you for your interest in registering your installation of OJS! We are not able to manually add journal installations, these statistics are automatically generated. It could be that your journal is one of the “unknown” category, which means that our system could not ‘see’ where the installation was located. It could also be that there is a slight lag in the process and that your journals will be included in the next update of this data.

      Best regards,
