How to scale to a large number of journals
As open source software goes, OJS is endlessly customizable. You can choose your theme, add header graphics and apply your own stylesheet. OJS also allows you to host a number of journals in one OJS installation, which makes management very efficient. But organisations that host OJS journals, seem to end up with one OJS for each client of even for each journa.
The main reasons for this are:
- Modifications in templates can't be avoided. Templates are shared between all journals in an installation.
- Userdatabases are shared among all journals in a certain installation (John indicated in Athens there is a solution for this. Anyone?)
