Hi Sulaman,

Thanks for rising this topic


Dear Mark @mjordan and @asmecher, greetings.
This message is just a humble reminder regarding the plugin for PKP PN in OJS 3.x which was supposed to be finalized by end of March. I nevertheless understand the time and effort of your team for this lengthy plugin project and only look forward to your kind updates.

Hi @sulaman,

Thanks, we are aware that our stated goal has passed. Part of the newest delay is understanding our obligations imposed by the EU’s GDPR regulations and how they impact long-term digital preservation. We have chosen to gain a clear understanding of the impact GDPR will have on how the OJS 3 plugin should work before releasing it to the general OJS user community. That said, we are actively investigating what those impacts are and are committed to making the plugin available as soon as possible.


Hi @mjordan and @asmecher, greetings. I hope you and the team fellows are working productively. May I ask about the latest updates regarding PKP PN plugin for OJS 3.x. Last time you mentioned that the OJS team is working to understand implication of GDPR regulation by EU on long term digital preservation. I hope the issue would have been well resolved yet will be obliged if you can mention a timeline for its release.

Meanwhile I also suggest only that a tentative plugin may kindly be released as has been the case with PKP PN plugin for OJS 2.8. I hope so many OJS users will benefit from the timely release.
Profound regards. Sulaman


Dear @mjordan and @asmecher, greetings.
I hope you and PKP team are working untiringly on the PKP PN plugin for OJS 3.x.

I would be grateful if you can kindly share the updates so far and tentative date of release.

Hello @Enzo and @sulaman,

The 3.x plugin is being tested on production journals at two different hosting sites. This testing has revealed a couple of issues, which we are addressing before continuing the next phase of tests. I can’t give you a more concrete timeline than “it will be ready when we don’t have any more blockers”. I’m sorry I can’t be more specific.



Thank you @mjordan for replay. We tested positively OJS 3.x and are looking forward to use it for our journals, but need PLN Plugin. I wish you well in your work.


You guys are really need to hold your horses and let the dev do their job… you must remember this is an open source community…


Hello Mark @mjordan,
Thank you indeed for the kind updates. I really look forward to hear positive soon. I do hope the developers team of PKP PN would kindly consider this important facilitation.
