[Application Version: OJS 3.2.1]
before I choose working solution, would like to ask if there’s also some other/nice once. I have a challenge, that I need to “share” same articles (with PDF and some also DOI) in two issues. Solution is that I can publish second issue and upload once again same articles and so on.
But was thinking if this can be done in DB. I looked at table publication_settings where it said in which issue (setting_name = issueId, setting_value) is article (publication_id). My idea was to make duplicate rows with new issue ID, but there’s a problem due to indexing (of course!). So was following up some relationship and come up to six tables that I would need to make manually records (duplicates with some ID changes). Which is not such a problem as I have only 3 new issues and each with approx. 25 articles.
But before I try this, would like:
- that somebody stops me
- to know if this would work
- is there any working solution for that kind of challenge
- not to hear that the best solution is to upload articles once again
Thx for help and have a great day, Marko
