Creating HTML and Metadata


I want to use latest version of OJS for our journal

I have a MS Word manuscript with *.docx format.

I want to create and publish a HTML vesion of the article (with images), How can I do it?

I want to create a XML file from full lengh article, How can I do it?

I want to produce PDF file from XML file, How can I do it?

Please accept my apology for these questions


Hi @Journalist,

This process generally takes place outside of OJS, and journals use a large variety of tools, depending on their workflow and resources. MS Word can produce HTML and PDF files directly; some journals use more design-centric tools like InDesign. For XML, there is a large mix of workflows, from outsourcing the transformation to third-party companies, to parsing/authoring tools like FidusWriter and OTS, etc.

I consult on this subject. What is the best way to upload HTML articles with images? Suppose I have an HTML already created with the images in the same folder (I use OJS 3.1.1).


I must put a server for the journal upload the images of each of your issues and link or there is a way to upload them in the same submission?

You can upload an image by attaching it to the HTML or XML galley. You need to point filename of attached image for the image path.upload_image
