* I have installed the software successully, but I found I had to turn allow_call_time_pass_reference on to get it to work without a large number of erors. Tip: for people without access to php.ini, the required preferences can be set in .htaccess using

php_flag register_globals 1
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc 1
php_flag allow_call_time_pass_reference 1

* We are thinking of starting journals based on eprint archives. For a summary of the concept see

To get this to work with OJS would require some quite extensive modifications:

- Removing all of the parts to do with production and file handling, going directly from "accept" to "published"

- Adding standardized key word lists to each author, referee and editor and automating most of the process of editor-assignment, and simplifying referee selection.

Is this something OJS would be interested in doing themselves? Otherwise if I make modifications the software will probably diverge irretrievably from the OJS distribution.
