SUPPORT: approved submissions on a Sched. Conf. are not appearing to unlogged users

I do not have any prior experience or training with this system, so my problem may be pretty easy to solve, but neither my most experienced colleagues know how to fix it.

So, we’ve made a scheduled conference in our university. Even though we did not use the system submission and approval flow, we are hosting all the presented papers in the platform. After the assigned role of director approved all of them, we cannot “see” these papers as the public. We can only see them if we log in as our respective roles - director, reader, etc.

So, we need to make sure that these submitted papers are available to the public after the whole approving process. We have perused through all the options available, but had no success. The wordings used to search through the forums didn’t help either, because “paper”, “public” and “access” are not exactly helpful when the system itself is named public knowledge, haha.

So, thanks in advance for any help provided.

Steps I took leading up to the issue

  1. Go to event page as an unlogged user.
  2. Click on presentations
  3. No presentations are available at the moment

What application are you using?
I have no clue. It’s a OCS actually, but I don’t know how to check the version.

Please add any screenshots, logs or other information we can use to investigate this problem.

Hello @pbrgm,

Thank you for your interest in Open Conference Systems (OCS). OCS is no longer supported or maintained by PKP. However, other community members may wish to offer assistance, or you may find relevant information in our OCS documentation:

If you are looking for a current solution to manage conference paper submissions and publish conference papers, I suggest using Open Journal Systems (OJS), PKP’s software application for publishing scholarly journals. OJS has a complete editorial workflow for managing submission, peer review, and publishing that is flexible enough to be used for conferences. You can then use a separate tool to manage conference registration and scheduling.

Here is an example of an organization that uses OJS to publish their conference proceedings:

If you would like to explore OJS, there are a number of resources available.

Documentation is available on our web site that will guide you through the installation, configuration, and operation of the software:

Best regards,
