In our prior (original) 2.4.x install of OJS, Journal Setup->Submissions-> 3.4 For Authors to Index Their Work provided three entry boxes for “Coverage” metadata:
Provide examples of relevant geo-spatial or geographical terms for this field:
Please indicate any geographical areas that are relevant to, or described or depicted in the submission, e.g., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Onondaga County, New York.
(E.g., Iberian Peninsula; Stratosphere; Boreal Forest; etc.)
Provide examples of relevant chronological or historical terms for this field:
Please indicate any dates, eras, or other chronological periods relevant to the submission, e.g., 1970s; 21st century; 2007.
(E.g., European Renaissance; Jurassic Period; Third Trimester; etc.)
Provide examples of research sample characteristics for this field:
In our testing 3.1.2 install, on the Settings->Workflow->Submission page, one can activate only “Coverage.” Data from our prior (multiple) coverage fields did not successfully migrate into the single coverage field in 3.1.2.
This is very important for us not only for indexing, to have the past data properly migrated, but we drive visualizations of journal content off of chronological and geographical coverage independently, and need to have access to these prior coverage fields.
Has anyone else encountered this, and/or what might our solution path be?
