Is it possible please to upload datasets that relate to a paper so that they are accessible via a live link but not in the Contents List? We want to put occasional statistical tutorials in our journal and hence need this facility.

I have been told that such a facility is mandatory in some US journals, so that the readers can doublecheck the findings of a research paper should they so wish to.

If it is possible, I should be grateful for instructions please - we are running OJS 2.2.1.

Many thanks

I am not sure if I understand correctly what you need, but...
There is a possibility to upload supplemental files to a publication. They can be accessed via an URL and are not visible in the table of contents. (There is a link to supplemental files in reading tools, if the reading tools are activated). They somehow belong/relate to the publication (according to their meaning, as the name suggests it, they supplement a publication). So, if this is what you need (because you said "that relate to a paper") ...
Else, another possibility, maybe, is to use the static pages plug-in (s. or viewtopic.php?t=3437&f=28). I don't know if it can be used with 2.2.1 but it is definitely in 2.2.4.
Hope this helps somehow...
