Publishing supplementary files

Postby aviles77 » Mon Aug 17, 2009 3:35 pm

As the editor of an OJS based journal, I am interested in publishing documentation that can not be published in paper-based journals, such as color maps, photos, and questionnaires. I have not been able to publish an article that has all of the above as supplementary files. Once I published the article, in the corresponding Table of Contents the supplementary files do not show up. The OJS documentation that I have read does not explain how to deal with this issue. What should I do? Which OJS based journal shows this supplementary files in the table of contents? What am I doing wrong? Any help will be very much appreciated.

Hi aviles77,

You have a couple of options. If you've uploaded supplementary files, they can be made available from the Reading Tools sidebar, which, once enabled, is available next to the article itself. To enable the RT, log in as a Journal Manager; click the Reading Tools link from your User Home page; and check that they are enabled, and that the Supplementary Files link is also checked.

You can also link directly to the supplementary files by following the directions here and here. That last thread also has information on how to upload media files into OJS without using the Supplementary Files option.
