OCS google analytics

Good afternoon.
OCS Interested in the possibility of connecting, google analytics. Unfortunately, the plugin does not work (probably due to lack of updates). Perhaps someone realized it in their own and can tell you how to implement it. Thanks in advance.

Hello @Heorhii,

Thank you for your interest in Open Conference Systems (OCS). OCS is no longer supported or maintained by PKP. However, other community members may wish to offer assistance. Given that OCS is not supported, and has not been developed for some time, I doubt that support for this plugin/functionality is available.

If you are looking for a current solution to manage conference paper submissions and publish conference papers, I suggest using Open Journal Systems (OJS), PKP’s software application for publishing scholarly journals. OJS has a complete editorial workflow for managing submission, peer review, and publishing that is flexible enough to be used for conferences. You can then use a separate tool to manage conference registration and scheduling.

Here is an example of an organization that uses OJS to publish their conference proceedings: https://proceedings.cmbes.ca/index.php/proceedings.

If you would like to explore OJS, there are a number of resources available.

Documentation is available on our web site that will guide you through the installation, configuration, and operation of the software: https://docs.pkp.sfu.ca

We also provide a free, online support Forum where you can search for answers and post any unanswered questions that may arise while using OJS: http://forum.pkp.sfu.ca/

Online training modules, including video tutorials, are available at our PKP School: http://pkpschool.sfu.ca

You can also take OJS out for a test drive on our server to become more familiar with how it operates:https://demo.publicknowledgeproject.org/ojs3/testdrive/

If OJS doesn’t fit your needs and you are looking for a full conference management replacement, you could also try alternative free/open software solutions like Indico (built by CERN).

Thank you for your response. Thanks for the suggestion, looks great. But we’ve been using OCS for a few years now, a lot of the articles are already on the site. I would like to understand the statistics of conferences (which have already passed), to improve the work.

Hi @Heorhii,

Thanks for your response. Understandable that you would want to stick with OCS having already invested in it, but I did want to let you know that it is not being supported and recommend any longer by PKP. As noted, the documentation on our docs hub may be of assistance, particularly this document: https://pkp.sfu.ca/files/OCSinanHour.pdf (on p.45 in particular), although it provides very limited information on stats within OCS.
