Documentation for "OJS will not be used to publish journal"

Postby timelf » Sat Jan 25, 2014 3:54 pm

I can find nothing that explains this option in Setup Step 4.1: "OJS will not be used to publish the journal's contents online." If this option is chosen, what happens or doesn't happen? Please, someone from PKP, provide the explanation that is missing in the documentation.

Our journal will be hosted on our website, but we will use OJS as the backend CMS. We will be feeding metadata (when manually synched) and grabbing PDF files of articles when they are requested by readers on our website from OJS. I have built the first issue and will be building over 25 years worth of back issues. If I chose the above option in 4.1, will there be any difference from my built but not published issue? In other words, is there any difference besides public availability/indexing? We are currently able to link directly to the PDF files in our unpublished issue in OJS: will publishing the issue make any difference?

Hi timelf,

The difference is that the website won't offer access to published content; the "Current" and "Archive" links will not be visible, and browsing and searching will be disabled. The workflow isn't affected at all.

Hello timelf,

We use OJS for reviewing as you do. And we do not publish on the server where OJS is installed, as you do. We publich the journal on a editors French portal called CAIRN ... sances.htm

I have not been able to link from OJS "table of contents" of "published" (in fact, prepared) issues back to the public website.
How do you do this?
