I am in the process of implementing DOI’s for each of our articles within our Scholarly Exchange hosted journal. However, in starting this process, I’ve noticed that our hosted version of OJS (184.108.40.206) doesn’t adhere to the current DOI URL structure required by Cross Ref (our DOI provider).
DOI’s in this OJS version are current expressed as follows:
Latest Cross Ref DOI URL structure is:
Note the use of Secure Server ‘https’ and removal of ‘dx’.
I note that there is a forum post that suggests upgrading to the latest version 3 of OJS to address this problem. However, this is not something under our control.
Could you advise if this is something that can be fixed within our current version via the backend?
I’d also be really interested to know more about Scholarly Exchanges’ policy for updating its OJS hosting to the latest version. Is there a planned schedule for this?
