Open Journal Systems (OJS): FAQ

Information for editors

Common OJS tasks are well documented on PKP's YouTube channel and documentation. While their support and documentation is comprehensive, we find that our users frequently ask certain questions. Please search our (still) growing list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) below. If you would like us to add a tutorial/explanation to this list, please reach out:

Question Short answer
How do I make edits to an article once I have published it? Navigate to the article submission and upload a new galley file (full explanation).
How do I directly publish an article/how do I use the QuickSubmit Plugin? Find the QuickSubmit Plugin on the left-hand menu: "Tools" >> "Import/Export" (full explanation).
Why does OJS warn me about using an old version of the software when I log in? This warning is harmless. You can ignore it (full explanation).
