How should administrators configure OJS plugins for licensing to third parties

OJS: 3.1.2

Hi @272741632,

Our plugin guide covers this somewhat, but we usually leave the licensing bit up to the developers of the plugin: https://docs.pkp.sfu.ca/dev/plugin-guide/en/release

We do, however, list a number of plugin examples here: https://docs.pkp.sfu.ca/dev/plugin-guide/en/examples - you can go to their Github repositories to get a sense of the licenses that are typically used with plugins. And, in particular, the plugin Template provides a good example to work from (and includes other files that ought to be included in a plugin repository as well): GitHub - pkp/pluginTemplate: A starter template for building your own plugins for OJS and OMP.

By the way, version 3.1 is no longer supported by PKP - I’d highly recommend upgrading, and not developing a plugin for 3.1.
