Versioning of (published) publications

Postby kreissaege » Wed Apr 17, 2013 3:48 am


is in OJS a way to make some versions available for one publication.
Our problem ist that in one of our published article was found some mistakes and we need to publish a corrected version.
Does OJS provide some mechanism to publish more the one version (and also mark it?)
For the moment we have the idea to publish in the same issue the article twice - with a mark, that the second is the corrected version.
Any ideas are welcome!

Best Regards

Hi Katrin,

Have you considered uploading the old version as a supplementary file under the revised version?

We've handled this in the past by uploading the corrected PDF as another galley copy. When we upload the PDF, we put as the title of the document something like "corrected PDF" or "version of record." Then you have one article record with both versions available under a single record with the same DOI, but it's pretty clear which version is the correct one. We'll often also add a link after the metadata abstract to the erratum relating to the corrections that we publish in the next issue. That way it's pretty clear what the article's history is. I also, though, think the idea of moving the earlier version to the supplementary files section could work (but the change would be less obvious).
