HTML Entity Code (&) in OJS Email Subject

Describe the issue or problem
My organization has several journals with ampersands in the journal names. Automated emails appear to be encoding the & in the site name, resulting in users seeing & on the subject line of emails on both Outlook and Gmail. Is there something we can do to resolve this issue or is this an issue with OJS?

Steps I took leading up to the issue

  1. The Journal/Site name contains an &
  2. An automated email such as “New notification from [sitename]” is sent

What application are you using?
OJS 3.3.0.13
