SWORD-Plugin for OJS 3.x

Tags: #<Tag:0x007f4841f8f850>


Dear PKP-Team,

I am working for the CeDiS-E-Publishing-Team at the Freie Universität Berlin. We are considering migrating all our hosted OJS-journals from 2.4.8 to the new major release 3.x in the long term.
One criteria for this project is the availability of the SWORD-plugin. Can you inform us, for which upcoming OJS 3-release the SWORD-plugin will be available? Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards

Tahsin Özdemir


Hi @Toezdemir,

There have been a few other inquiries about SWORD for OJS 3.0 here:

We haven’t yet scheduled/prioritized that work, but the more interest in it we see, the higher a priority it will become. Our next scheduled release is OJS 3.1 and it’s unlikely to make that release, based on the amount of work we’re already committed to.

Thanks Alec for your response and sorry for taking so long to answer. I will then wait for the plugin’s interest to increase for the next update after 3.1
Thanks for everything!



I would like to support the request for a SWORD-plugin für OJS 3.x. This will be very useful for our infrastructure around our OJS installation.

I can totally agree.
A plugin for SWORD would be greate.

I would like to support the request, too.

Dear PKP-Team,

we would also like to support the SWORD plugin request.

Best regards

I would like to join in with the “we want a SWORD plugin” crowd. We, too, have a repository we want to connect to our OJS.

Kind regards,
Heike Riegler


Hi all,

FYI, I’ve filed this request over at https://github.com/pkp/pkp-lib/issues/3262.
