Hi everyone! @drugurkocak that’s a clever idea. However, we strongly discourage journals to use one kind of metadata field for another kind of data. Librarians and metadata depositing authorities get very upset when metadata fields are not respected. In other words, the subject field should contain subjects, the languages field should contain languages, and so on.
Starting from v3.2, OJS has made it much easier to write a small plugin to extend the data that is attached to a publication. It does require a little bit of coding, but it is not too difficult to do.
The Plugin Guide includes a section that describes how to extend the journal with a new setting. You can use the same code to extend the publication object by changing the hook from
Schema::get::publication. And changing the form you modify,
With just those changes you’ll add a new field to the publication’s title/abstract form. And from there you can modify your theme to display this information wherever you’d like (or use the
Templates::Article::Main hook to automatically print this information on the article landing page).
