Quick Updates

  • Question of the Month: What PKP products are you using, and for how long?
    • Clinton: OJS (mostly 2.x; soon to launch first 3.0); OMP (1 book). OCS decommissioned. Just starting OTS stack.
    • Alec: We use all apps, obviously -- notably OHS for the PKP index. Moving apps to OJS 3, which requires some server environment gymnastics.
    • Alex: OJS (2.x to 3.x upgrade); now OMP for pilot project.
    • Kenton: OJS for over 10 years; 40 journals. Offer free hosting for Canadian journals. Still on 2.x, hoping to move to 3.x this fall. EZID is a holdout. Used to run OCS but that has been decommissioned. Hoping to get into OMP soonish.

    • Svantje: FU Berlin uses OJS since 2006; more recently OMP. Several pilot projects.

Sprint Debrief

  • Huge thanks, everyone! Biggest group yet, very successful and smooth.
  • Alec/Kevin will be in touch soon to "encourage" team leads to write up blog posts.

Release Progress

  • OJS 3.1 just scheduled for October 20th. Locale freeze begins September 22.
  • Bozana just finished coding Section Editor recommendations, one of the big requests.

Translation

  • OJS3
    • Spanish translation updated (thanks Marc and Jordi)
    • Russian continuously updated
    • will take another look at German
  • problems with conflicting translations
  • cannot put that much work into manually uploading & merging, need to refer people to GitHub
  • after OJS3 release: have to think about changes to workflow (technical), but also organizational (locale maintainers, more frequent updates, strong partners)
  • OMP, OJS2, OCS: no updates
