[OJS] Restricted character limit in ‘title’ field in "Submission and Publication Metadata"

I have this problem in OJS restricted character limit in ‘title’ field in “Submission and Publication Metadata”

Could you tell me how to extend the limit?

Thank you!

Hi @David_Alarcon_davidy,

I don’t know the way to do so without modifications in a template file.
I don’t see that there is a limit in the database for that particular input field. So, the only place where the limit exists is the form: https://github.com/pkp/pkp-lib/blob/master/templates/submission/submissionMetadataFormTitleFields.tpl#L22
But I have no idea if it’s going to be changed and the consequences of increasing the limit. Probably @asmecher knows more.

Hi all,

I don’t believe there’s a limit beyond the one in the input field. However, 255 characters is already pretty long for a title… Beyond that, I would wonder about downstream metadata formats starting to suffer (e.g. Google Scholar, CrossRef, the various citation formats, OAI-PMH, etc).

Thank you very much for responding @Vitaliy @asmecher
We will indicate the limit in 255 for the title in the editorial standards of the magazine to avoid the problem of too long titles.
