Reviewer Credit Plugin Not Installing


We are using OJS but try to install Reviewer Credit plugin but not installing. I download from this link

and change the folder name reviewercredits-ojs-master to reviewercredits.7z file and upload the plugin but still not installing. Please guide. Screenshot attached.


Hi @hussainyousaf
I looked at the Github page and see that the plugin doesn’t have a .tar.gz release. You need to use .tar.gz format for the Upload a New Plugin function (image).

If you can’t get a .taz.gz file, than you may download source as .zip file, upload to its relevant folder in plugins directory, extract the archive file, and then rename it.

@drugurkocak Thanks for your quick reply. Please guide there are many folders in plugin folder where i add this plugin files. Screenshot is attached


The easier method;

  1. Please go to

  2. Click the download icon just in the image, and click tar.gz from the menu, reviewercredits-ojs-plugin-master.tar.gz file will be downloaded to your computer.

  3. Go to Website settings → Plugins tab, and click Upload a New Plugin (image)

  4. Drag the file to the upload area.

For manual upload, please upload to Plugins → Generic directory, extract the file and rename as reviewerCredits

@drugurkocak Thanks for your quick reply. I tried you guide me but now this error message is displaying.


Since I could upload and install the same file on my OJS 3.2.x install, you might not have access to tar function, or might have some other server related issues.
If you have web based file manager, I suggest to use second method (download .zip file, upload it to plugins → generic directory, unzip, then rename, and activate at the OJS plugin settings page
