Hello everyone, we are migrating our Journal from the print/PDF Distribution format to an OJS based system.
We have 29 previous magazines, with about 5 articles each (Average).
I’m new, so I would like, please, if you to tell me if this steps process to follow is reasonable and correct:
1- Create each of the 29 issues
2- Add each article to its corresponding issue, Category and section through the QuickSubmit plugin.
3- Once all issues are complete and publicated, assign the DOIs for all the articles uploaded using the option “Assign DOI” in the Public identifier Plugin (DOI).
As I understand, using this option assigns DOIs to ALL the articles that do not have one already assigned, therefore to all the articles of the previous 29 numbers that we uploaded through the QuickSubmit Plugin, would automatically be assigned their corresponding DOIs, right?
I would very much appreciate your opinions and suggestions, thank you very much in advance.
Hello. I want to ask. We want to assign DOIs to our back issues. The articles are already published. I followed all the steps, however once I clik "ok’ in assigning DOI, it does not respond and nothing happens. What should I do? Thank you.
Hi. I haven’t assigned DOIs yet. Whenever I do the assign doi on the doi plugin, it doesn’t respond and nothing happens. I am thinkinv whether I should unpublish the back issues and assign dois manually or not.
"once I clik “ok’ in assigning DOI, it does not respond and nothing happens. What should I do? Thank you.”
So… if you have already done it, you have already assigned the DOIs to the articles.
But you must finish the process of exporting those DOIs to CrossRef (or the agency you have chosen) using the CrossRef export plugin , because they are the “entity” that assigns the DOIs. Only after this will the DOIs actually be displayed on your website (if there is no problem).
Remember that you must have your CrossRef access data configured in the plugin beforehand.
