    • Still targeting Q1 but lots of work to do

    • Overhauled approvals
    • Completing refinements of access controls to queries (copyediting, proofreading, etc)
  • OJS 3.0
    • (Features per OMP 1.2; planning aggressive 3.0 release after OMP 1.2)

Journals and presses that plan to go live in 6 months or more can (consider) start working with OJS and OMP master branch. IZ

  • OJS stable
    • Can schedule OJS 2.4.7-2 / OJS 2.4.8 at the group's discretion. Have a variety of bug fixes but nothing substantial yet.

    • Persistent Identifier in OJS 3.0 -- a slightly different UI/UX approach
    • DOI deposit plugins
