Publisher name in multilingual journals


OJS 3.0.1.

In Settings => Journal you can only enter the Publisher name using one locale. Is this intended and why?

Hi @ajnyga,

Currently the publisher institution field is used by the CrossRef, DOAJ, PubMed, RFC1807, MARC, COUNTER, RSS, and DC exports. Of those, only the DC export supports more than one language. Making the field multilingual is a possibility, but the additional data essentially wouldn’t be used at this point.

thanks, I had a feeling this has something to do with metadata. I will tell our journals to fill it with their primary locale.

Dear all,
How can I add a multilingual name or family name for submission like affiliation field? How should we update the database for name or family name field?
Thanks a lot

Hi @MJB,

Adding support for multilingual author/user names is a priority, but isn’t completed yet. See Improve author/user names · Issue #2958 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub for details.
