Increase your journal's reach and discoverability with better metadata

Poor quality, error-filled, or inconsistent metadata is a common reason why journals are not harvested by Google Scholar and other indexing services. Metadata is information that describes a digital object, such as a journal article or issue. In OJS it can include journal title, ISSN, journal sections, article title, authors, language, and publication date. PKP has published a new guide on Better Practices in Journal Metadata that explains how to correct and avoid common metadata errors to improve your journal’s impact. It was created by the Coalition Publica Metadata Working Group and edited by PKP’s Documentation Interest Group.
