OJS 2.4.8-2 which table/column in database shows who wrote the article

I’m currently just installed OJS 2.4.8-2.
I need to know about the author.
Which table store the detail about an article?
And in which column we could know the author of the article?

Because in link here → https://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/docs/technicalreference/2.1/designOverviewDatabaseDesign.html
it says that table ‘article_​authors’ is for ‘Stores article authors on a per-article basis’.
But sadly i don’t have that table on my database. Does my database corrupted or they already changed the database?

Thank you very much.

Hi @amandatnr,

In more recent OJS 2.x releases (and all OJS 3.x releases), authors (and author_settings) are the tables to look at. The OJS 2.1 Technical Reference is quite out-dated, but the basic concepts are still correct, and we’ll be working to update it.

Hello, may I know what is the function of column ‘access_status’ in table ‘published_articles’?
Is there a documentation about the database in OJS
Because I’m currently doing a research that makes me need to know completely about the DB structure.
