Network Status: The PKP PLN can accept deposits from this journal

We are using OJS 3.1.2. The following message shows for several months: The PKP PLN does not know about this journal yet.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the wrong subject. It should be: Network Status: The PKP PLN does not know about this journal yet.

Hello @acad-pub,

You may want to check out what to do here:

How long ago did you enable the PKP PN plugin? It often takes a while to populate.

Also: OJS 3.1, while technically compatible with the PKP PN, is quite outdated. I would strongly recommend upgrading your OJS to a later version when you can.

Hi Roger,

Thanks for your reply. I enabled the PKP PN plugin on February 29. Could you help me?

By the way, OJS 3.1.2 is stable, so we have no plan to upgrade the OJS at this time.

Best regards,
Bruce

Hi @acad-pub,

I’m paging my colleague @jonasraoni here who administers much with the PKP PN, he may be able to speak to this further.

Hi @acad-pub, please, take a look if it’s showing the same status now.

Regarding the OJS version, here you can see which versions we’re giving support (actively fixing problems): Security Policy · pkp/ojs · GitHub, 3.1 isn’t receiving support since 2022.

Hi @acad-pub,

Just to add in to what Roger and Jonas said about upgrading – beyond not receiving security updates, you’ll find that the integrations built into OJS 3.1 will eventually stop working, if they haven’t already. Third parties like CrossRef, ORCiD, etc. update their APIs over time and will require you to run software that stays current as well. The longer you delay upgrading, the harder it’ll be. I’d recommend working on an upgrade to 3.3.0-x (the current Long Term Support version).

Hi Jonas,

Thanks for your help. The status has now changed. It shows: Network Status: The PKP PLN can accept deposits from this journal.

However, I can see no issues to be deposited. We have published several issues. What’s wrong?

Bruce

Hi Alec,

We will carefully consider your suggestion. Thank you for sharing the information.

Regards,
Bruce

The PKP PN plugin and its dependencies had a couple of problems. I searched for all problems that people had in the forum and fixed most of them, but the fixes are available only for OJS >= 3.3.0.

With that being said, perhaps you just have a light issue… The plugin has a scheduled task that runs once per day, so you should be able to see its execution log at the folder: {$files_dir}/scheduledTaskLogs, the filename starts with PKPPNDepositorTask.

Share the content of the latest one and also entries from your server’s error log (the entries from yesterday should be enough).

If you can’t find the log for the task, it means that it’s not running. Then are you using the Acron plugin or an OS scheduler like CRON? If you’re using the Acron plugin, then you can try to reload the tasks assigned to it (see image below).
