Remove an issue

Postby Beatriz » Thu May 20, 2004 6:19 am

Hi, I'd like to know how can I remove an issue of the OJS with all the articles
that were publicated in it.

I want do this because I create a "test issue" in my OJS and now I want
delete it.

Thanks Beatriz

You must first remove all articles from the issue and then you will be able to delete the issue.

How can I delete/remove an article that is not yet published from the system, that is articles still on submission queue? I can't find any function for that in 1.1.7.

Decline the submission (or "archive" it, if it has already been accepted), and it will appear under the Submission Archive from where it can be deleted.

I have also created a test issue which has been published (the site is still not open to the public) however there seems to be no obvious way to delete an article or the whole issue. When I look in Archives I just get a link to the issue and the TOC is displayed. If I click on the article it just appears.

Am I looking in the right place?

Hi Chris,

To archive an article that has already been published:
  • Go into the Archive list as Editor
  • Click on the article title to display its "Editing" page
  • Go to the Summary page
  • Click the "Archive Submission" link
In the Archive list, it will now be possible to delete the article.

Regards,
Alec Smecher

Thanks Alec, the test issue is now history. :D

I'm going to have to make a mental note of these steps for future reference.

best wishes,
Chris_A
