Morepress Journals - OJS (feedback appreciated)

Hello PKP Community and greetings from the sunny Croatia!

We (University of Zadar) are excited to share with you a journal platform called Morepress journals, based on OJS The journals in the title implies there will also be a solution for books (OMP), proceedings and a nice blog/portal to round it all up.

The site encompasses all journals published by the University of Zadar, currently eleven of them.

You can visit the site at

Since Morepress journals is nearing its end of development, we would greatly appreciate your feedback, especially in terms of design, looks, usability and UX, but if you have comments and suggestions on other areas, please feel free to express them as well.

Some of the aspects we are really proud of include:

  • Responsive design
  • Tab switcher on journal homepage
  • Latest articles sidebar block
  • HTML view design

Here are some screenshots:

And finally, homepage on desktop

We still have about a month's work left to do, which includes a lot of CSS and translations housekeeping, some new sidebar blocks and other goodies.

Lastly, we would like to thank the PKP team for providing a nice API that helped us adapt OJS to specific needs of University journals. Thank you!

Looks fantastic! Please let us know when it is launched and we can help let others know about your great work.

Alec and Kevin, thanks for you feedback. @jmvezic has created a great design. We will let you know as soon as we finish our first task. It was a challaging trip and It is just the begging. Our idea is to use OMP for Morepress | books and OCS for the Morepress | proceedings platform. At the end everything should be integrated within a central Morepress website (most probably powered by WordPress, but we’ll see …).
