we are evaluating OJS for using it as a theses managment (submit, grade, publish) tool. theses will be BSc, MSc, doctoral, …
since OJS workflow includes the required stages already, there will be only small adaptions/addings needed:
- setup OJS journals for theses types with responsible student office as editors.
- authenification (windows AD)
- time-slot for submitting the theses.
- import functionality for students which need to submit thesis
- OJS frontend for choosing the theses type
- submitting GUI with related regulations
- submitting GUI for adding related reviewers
- submission recipt with timestamps and checksums of submitted files.
- automated stage change to „review“ after submission.
- and some more additions for sure. but much easier to implement then to build it new (i.e. with a sharepoint solution!).
does someone already „mis“use OJS for theses management?
or does someone know an other open source solution for it?
thanks a lot
