Name for Country

Dear PKP Team,

We are using the OJS for our journal Economic and Business Review and we have in editorial board also members from Macedonia. In the system there is still previous name Macedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic Of. Could you please change the country name just to Macedonia (North Macedonia - Wikipedia).

Thank in advance and best regards,




Note that ISO 3166-1 lists Macedonia as “Macedonia (the former Yugoslav Republic of)”.

Hi @Tomazu,

We sometimes get requests for country name changes. We try to take the most apolitical decision possible, which for us is to stick with the ISO3166-1 country list. Of course, you’re free to modify the country list in your own installation – it’s in lib/pkp/locale/en_US/countries.xml (where en_US indicates the English version).
