OJS - Journal Configuration step 2.5 Add Item to Appear in "About the Journal"

Hello all,

This section should not be added to the policies section, as it is mostly used to publish historical and indexing information about the journal. However, this can be manually changed in the template eventually.

The most important feature here should be enabling the ordering of these item, much like the submission checklist.

I’ll second this request. The ordering of items in “About the Journal” seems a bit haphazard. We’ve had editors ask if there’s a way to manually order items in this section, or at least order the items alphabetically. I haven’t been able to find a way to do so other than manually reordering the template files.

Hi all,

We’re unlikely to make substantial changes for OJS 2.x, but consider taking a look at OJS 3.0 beta. We’ve rearranged the user interface thoroughly and I hope it’ll be less cluttered.
