[OJS 3.1.2] Plugin Journal Stats


I would like to know how to implement this plugin on the ojs 3 platform, since I have seen several
journals that have it in their publications:


Hello @diegomejia07,

OJS does offer the usage statistics plugin that displays a table graph of views. Here’s an example of what it would look like on Polar Research.

It looks like that might be a plugin that would have been modified or custom developed.

I hope that this clarification is helpful, but please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Kind Regards,

@diegomejia07, this plugin was a bit popular in OJS 2.4.x, but I never aware of an update to OJS 3.x.

Did you see any journals with current OJS and this plugin in use?


@pmangahis I understand, the statistics complement that OJS brings, I have it active in my installation.

@abadan I used this add-on in version 2.X of OJS, but this week I saw it in an installation that I know is a version 3.X of OJS and it has this add-on. Here is the url:


Interesting this example.

From what I’ve observed, they pull this data from an external tool hosted at https://ojsdata6.metarevistas.org/ and not from OJS itself like the plugin for OJS 2 we know.

You might want to get in touch with the journal managers for more information.
