Hi Mahmood,

You probably have an invalid UTF-8 character in your metadata. This could come from a number of sources:
  • A non-transcoded migration from OJS 1.x
  • Cutting and pasting content from a Microsoft application (e.g. Word) containing smart quotes
  • Latin1-encoding characters
You'll need to narrow down where the invalid character is; try exporting individual articles manually until you determine which article contains the problem, then review its metadata. In particular, watch for smart quotes (which are technically not valid) in abstracts and try replacing them with regular quotes.
