Database housekeeping after removal

Inside one of our OJS installations (version 3.1.2-4) we’ve removed one journal, due to its migration to another institution. After the removal, we’ve noticed the “submissions”, “submissions_settings”, etc… database tables still contain a lot of content related to the removed journal.

We’d like to know the reason for maintaining this content, and if there’s any steps we can take for its definitive deletion.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi @RevistasCSIC,

This is something we’ve recently addressed for the forthcoming OJS 3.4.0 release. Don’t worry about those remnants; when you upgrade to 3.4.0, any extras will be cleaned up.
