Hi dresimple,

See http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php/Import ... XML_Plugin -- not all of the methods supported in OJS are supported in OCS, but you can at the very least use the Papers XML import/export method. You will find this by logging into OCS as a conference manager, clicking the Import/export data link for a scheduled conference you have created, and uploading an XML file containing all relevant information. You will also find a sample XML file in plugins/importexport/native/.

Cheers,
James

Hi! I'm trying to import a lot of papers that are in the same disk as the website. I've created an xml file with all the info and used the href field for the galleys. But the plugin told me that there is no galley file for the papers. :(
Is it possible to import papers in this way? Or I have to embed all the files?

Thank you!

I was reading the plugin code and I've discovered that you need to run the plugin from the command line in order to import files from the disk. :o
