Typo in country list

Hi there,

One of our journal managers noticed that there is a typo in the country listing for United Kingdom - it says: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Nothern Ireland - so is missing the ‘r’ in Northern. This isn’t as it is listed in the ISO3166-1 country list either. It woudl be good to know if this has been fixed in 3.1, as we are currently running 3.0.2. In the mean time we’ll try to edit the country using the fix mentioned in various threads, such as 47287.


Best wishes,

Hi @Kyle,

You can correct that in OJS 3.0.2 by editing lib/pkp/locale/en_US/countries.xml. In more recent releases GB is listed just as “United Kingdom” – we periodically update our lists from the Debian iso-codes package (last updated in OJS: update countries.xml files for locales · Issue #2715 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub).

Hi @asmecher,

Thanks for replying. Good to know that this is fixed in a later release, and we’ll certainly try to get the code updated on our current version in the meantime.

Have a great Xmas!
