Need help with the publishing process


Thanks for making OJS! It’s been interesting working with such a different system!

Now, onto my issue:

I have installed OJS for a local university. They have, through hard work, been able to finish the peer-review process.

I am still Journal Editor and Administrator. Now they want me to publish the first issue.

For this to happen, I need:

  1. The final files for each article (after corrections), to be downloadable.

  2. To be able to upload my stylized PDF files as the articles to be published.

Basically, I want to download their ungainly .DOCX files and make them pretty with my design software. I know how to edit the magazine once I have the text files, but I don’t know how to get the text files, or how to upload them so that they are published in the issue.

Can you please help?

Hi @Marcos_Codas,

Check out the OJS in an Hour document, in particular the section titled “Layout Editing”. (OJS supports using a separate role for layout editing, but if you intend to do the work with an editor account, that’s fine too; the layout editing area is available to editors and layout editors alike.)

Sorry for the delay, but thank you! I’m still working through this, but I’m making progress!
