Scholarly Journal Publishing: Florida Online Journals: Home: OJS 3 FAQ and Training

Florida Online Journals (Florida OJ) is a service for publishing journal content. The software allows for a variety of publishing workflows including prospective authors uploading material, anonymous reviews, and publishing of the final journal materials

Florida OJ Overview

SCHOLARLY JOURNALS

FLVC provides a number of services for electronic scholarly journals under our Florida Online Journals (Florida OJ) program. We can work through your library, or directly with your faculty, to publish and/or produce their open access journals.

Using the Open Journal Systems (OJS) open source publishing software as the underlying system, we can help you:

  • Publish electronic journals from scratch with Florida OJ & OJS. If you need a publishing system for your journal, Florida OJ can provide a free platform and technical support. Using OJS, editors can have authors submit manuscripts, can edit the manuscripts, and can publish to the web.
     
  • Host electronic journals in Florida OJ. If you are already publishing through another system, you can still host with Florida OJ. OJS provides not only basic search and browse features for hosted journals, but indexing with the Directory of Open Access Journals, RSS feeds, OAI-PMH repository functionality, automatic email notifications for users, and other features.
     
  • Provide access to licensed commercial journals no longer supported by the publisher.  If you have back issues of commercial journals for which you need to continue to provide access, you can host those journals with Florida OJ as well. We can support a variety of types of access restrictions for these journals if necessary. Hosting with Florida OJ gives your journal increased user access, well-developed and supported publishing software, and security of data. We encourage open access to all journals, but do support access restrictions if necessary. If your institution is interested in publishing or hosting a journal with Florida Online Journals, please feel free to contact us at: help@flvc.org.
     
  • Requesting a Journal in Florida OJ. If you are ready to request a journal in Florida OJ, please work through the Florida OJ Journal Request Form and Onboarding Packet , and have your library liaison return a completed journal request form.

After we have created a journal for you, we request that  you also make a catalog record for the journal and include a link in the catalog record to the journal on the Florida OJ website.  This will allow researchers to more easily find your journal.

 

Where to Find More Information about Open Journal Systems (OJS)

Florida OJ runs on the Open Journal Systems (OJS) software maintained by the Public Knowledge Project.  As of July 2019, Florida OJ is running on OJS version 3, so please refer to guidance for OJS 3 rather than OJS 2.  Information on how to use the software can be found on the Public Knowledge Project’s website.  Two resources are particularly useful.

PKP Schools:  Training Modules for OJS

There is a page with short training modules at http://pkpschool.sfu.ca/ .  Note:  PKP Schools will require you to register and login.  There is no fee for the courses.

Recommended for all journals: The “Setting up a Journal in OJS 3” course takes about 3 hours to sit through and is a good starting point for new journal managers.  It covers setting up basic colors, and it goes over journal settings that can help you tie into existing programs for search and preservation.

Recommend for journals accepting submissions and completing reviews in Florida OJ:  The "Editorial Workflow in OJS 3" course takes about 2 hours to sit through.  It shows the range of workflows supported by the software, and is useful for knowing what is possible.  It also links out to guidance on how to implement your desired workflows.

Manuals and written documentation

Full manual:  https://docs.pkp.sfu.ca/learning-ojs/en/ :  Learning OJS 3.1: A Visual Guide to Open Journal Systems

Support forum:  There is a support forum at http://forum.pkp.sfu.ca/ where OJS users can post questions and answers.  This can help you to search for information on doing something specific in OJS.

FLVC/FALSC Quickstart Guide:  FLVC/FALSC also makes available a Florida OJ Quickstart Guide.

News

  • July 1:  Email should now be working on Florida OJ
    • ​As of 7pm June 30, email should be working on Florida OJ.  From July 1 and forward, if you have reason to believe email is not working, please contact help@flvc.org with "Florida OJ" in the subject line.
    • Covering the gap:  FLVC/FALSC does not have plans to pull a list of emails not sent.  At this time, we encourage you to try to pull recent updates by logging in to your journal, then from the journal logged in view, clicking to “Submissions” then “All Active” and viewing the dashboard of statuses.  This will show current status of each active submission.
    • Potential open issues: 
      • There are two different ways email is sent:  Emails triggered by an action in the software (ie. password reset, notification of actions such as reviews and new submissions); and scheduled reminder emails sent overnight (ie. reminder emails when a review is overdue).  The way the two are sent is slightly different.
      • FLVC/FALSC is able to confirm that emails triggered by an action on the software are fully functional.  FLVC/FALSC is interested to hear from journals using scheduled reminder emails, and to get confirmation that those are working smoothly.  We have reached out to some journals using scheduled reminder emails.  If you have additional information about the scheduled reminders we greatly appreciate if you email to help@flvc.org with “Florida OJ” in the subject line, and let us know whether the reminders went out last night and over the weekend.
  • June 28:  Email down on Florida OJ
    • Following the upgrade, email is temporarily unavailable on Florida OJ.  This is inadvertent.  Email is intentionally disabled on all test and development servers, so that the installs there do not send erroneous reminders out.  We suspect here that a setting from the development or test server carried over to production.
    • It is anticipated that this will be resolved early in the week of July 1.  This note will be updated when email is available again.
  • Major software upgrade completed June 27, 2019.
    • An upgrade to the Florida OJ software powering the service is complete as of June 27.
    • The upgraded site is at a new location, https://journals.flvc.org .  All URLs from the old http://journals.fcla.edu location for articles and issues will redirect to the new location of the content.
    • Following the upgrade, please report any problems or send any questions to help@flvc.org with "Florida OJ" in the subject line.
    • Many thanks to the technical team that made this possible:  Wade Collins, Liang Zhong, Rick Chu, Gail Lewis, Wilhelmina Randtke, Stephen Szanati, and Gary Phillips.
  • Major software upgrade scheduled for June 24 to 27.
    • The software powering Florida Online journals will be upgraded to a new version.  Logged out views will have a different look and feel, but will generally carry over (all incoming links to articles and issues will still work).  Logged users will have dramatically different steps to follow in order to be able to accomplish task in the software (ie. upload a submission, review a submission, publish an issue).
    • Up-to-date information about the upgrade can be found at http://falsc.libguides.com/FloridaOnlineJournals/OJS3upgrade .
    • An upgraded test site is available at https://ojs.test.flvc.org .  All journal content that was live on Florida OJ is live on this test site, and all logins are active.  Email is disabled, so that it won't send any reminder emails to reviewers and others.
    • Please ask questions and report any issues by writing to help@flvc.org with "Florida OJ" in the subject line.

FAQ: OJS 3 Upgrade

How do I log into https://ojs.test.flvc.org ?

From the homepage, click to "Log In" in the top right corner.

The ojs.test.flvc.org site was copied from http://journals.fcla.edu on Feb. 21, 2019.  All user logins from that date will work.  If you were onboarded more recently, then please email help@flvc.org with "Florida OJ" in the subject line for a password reset.

* Note * Email is disabled on https://ojs.test.flvc.org .  So, if you forget your password, you have to email to help@flvc.org for a password reset.

How can I change the look, feel, and colors of my journal layout?

Please refer to the Quickstart Guide for OJS 3 located further down on this webpage, in the section titled "First Steps:  Colors and Layout".

During the anticipated downtime from June 24 to 27, 2019, what will visitors see when accessing Florida OJ?

All visitors will see a message similar to http://journals.fcla.edu/index.html , but with updated dates.

Why will the site be unavailable for such a long time, 3 days, during the upgrade?

When FLVC/FALSC has run the upgrade script on a copy of actual site data, the run time is more than 50 hours.

It would be possible to leave the older site open, take a copy, upgrade the copy, and then launch to the upgraded copy.  However, any author submissions or reviewer activity on the site made during the time while the copy is being upgraded, would be discarded.  Even with a warning displayed on the site, someone might click in, log in, and complete publishing tasks.  The decision is that having no site available for a few days is better than the risk of having engaged reviewers and authors interact with the site and then discarding their activity.

How was the date chosen?

More than 40 journals use the Florida OJ site in some capacity.  No date would be amenable to all journals.  The date was chosen at random and is a time when all FLVC/FALSC employees supporting Florida OJ are available.

What is the anticipated impact of the URL changes on my journal?

As part of the upgrade, all URLs will change from http://journals.fcla.edu to https://journals.flvc.org .

All URLs will redirect.  So, an incoming link to an article will go to the new location of that article.  An incoming link to an issue will go to the new location of that issue.  For purposes of search engine optimization, "link juice" will remain intact, and appearances of Florida OJ content in Google Scholar and other search engines are anticipated to update to the new location.

The URL will change from a .edu to a .org .  The .edu is difficult to register.  Since the late 1990s, .edu domains have only been available to accredited institutions and have been limited to one .edu domain per accredited institution.  The .edu was never freely available.  So, search engines prioritize .edu content.  Nevertheless, flvc.org is used for a wide variety of academic publishing, is heavily interlinked with .edu sites, and it is anticipated that search engine algorithms will treat flvc.org as a credible source for information.

The change from http to https is better for search engine rankings and is anticipated to have a positive effect.

Search engines are secretive about how they rank websites, and the information provided here is a best assessment based on available information.

I am a journal manager.  How can I pull a list of all editors, reviewers, authors on my journal in order to send updated instructions?

In OJS 2:

  1. Log in to the journal as Journal Manager.
  2. Click to "Import/Export Data".
  3. Click to "Users XML Plugin".
  4. You can export by role.  So, you can export all registered users, or you can click to get all authors, all reviewers, etc.
  5. Click to export and a .csv file will download.
  6. Open the file with Microsoft Excel, and grab the "/user/email" column.

In OJS 3:

  1. Log in to the journal.
  2. On the left hand side of the screen, click to "Tools" then "Import/Export".
  3. Click to "Users XML Plugin".
  4. Click to "Export Users".  You can also search users and use the drop down menu to search by role, in order to get just authors, just reviewers, etc.
  5. Click to "Export All Users".
  6. Open with Microsoft Excel and grab the "ns2:email" column.

I am getting a lot of automatic emails from a journal.  How can I make it stop?

Quick answer:  Depending on the notification, you may or may not be able to disable it from each user account.  Some cannot be disabled, and will require each person to add a filter from in their email account's settings.

Long answer:

OJS 3 sends an email from 3 places.

If the journal is configured to send a notification email to a specific list of people, then the software will do so.  To check this setting, have a Journal Manager on your journal do the following:  Log in to Florida OJ, click to your journal's logged in view, click to "Settings" "Workflow" then check settings under the heading "Notification of Author Submission".

Notification that a new article has been uploaded:  To turn this off:  Log into Florida OJ, click to your journal's logged in view, in the top right corner mouse over your username and click "View Profile", click to the "Notifications" tab, under the heading "A new article, "Title," has been submitted." check the box for "Do not send me an email for these types of notifications."

Notification that a new article has been uploaded and needs an editor assigned:  This will only go out when an editor is not automatically assigned to incoming articles.  There is no way for individuals receiving the email to stop it.  Try going into your email account's settings, and adding an email filter to remove emails with the text "A new article has been submitted to which an editor needs to be assigned." in the body of the email.  (For the technically minded, as of July 2019, FLVC/FALSC is looking at implementing the following patch https://github.com/pkp/pkp-lib/pull/4269/commits/33d18ed60b3747eb2ad7b46c25b7328a4c9ffb09 .)

What settings do I need to check after the upgrade?

  • All journals:
    • Verify public access to the journal:
      • Previously, each journal fully controlled access settings, while FLVC/FALSC controlled only whether or not an incoming link appeared on the homepage.  After upgrade, the link from the homepage is required for a journal to have any publicly available content at all - even a call for proposals.  FLVC/FALSC has proactively contacted each library liaison regarding affected journals, but please check your content.
      • How to check:  Make sure you are logged out of Florida OJ.  Browse to your journal and ensure that all the content you thought should be public is still public.  If anything appears to be missing and especially if you see a big please-log-in message, please contact help@flvc.org to get the issue resolved.
    • Masthead:
      • Portions of the masthead were autofilled by the upgrade script.  Please check that the masthead accurately reflects your editorial board.
      • To check this: Log into Florida OJ, and go to https://journals.flvc.org/yourJournalURLhere/about/editorialTeam .  If changes are needed, then click the "Edit" button under the masthead.
    • Banner image and text across top of journal pages:
      • Prior to the upgrade, the software allowed display of both a banner image and a textual journal title.  After the upgrade, the software allows display of one or the other.
      • To check this:  Click to your journal's new homepage, and verify that the look and feel is as intended.  If you would like to make changes, then follow the Florida OJ Quickstart Guide for OJS 3 ( http://falsc.libguides.com/FloridaOnlineJournals/OJS3FAQandTraining#s-lg-box-wrapper-25236197 ) section on journal themeing to make changes.
  • Journals accepting author submissions through Florida OJ:
    • Required metadata fields in the author submission form (ie. keywords, copyright statement, etc.:
      • If keywords and other fields were required in the author submission before upgrade, those are likely not enabled after upgrade.  You should check the way the upload screens look for the author, and reanable any required fields.
      • To check this:  Log into Florida OJ.  From your journal's logged in pages, click to "Settings" "Workflow" then to the "Submission" tab.  Review the "Submission Metadata" area.  Check boxes for any fields you are using, then check off if the box should appear in the author submission form and whether the field should be required vs optional in the author submission form.  Click "Save" to apply changes.
      • Note:  Any metadata entered into submissions made before the upgrade is still there.  The only thing that changed is what fields show up on the author submission form.  All your preexisting records are intact.

Florida OJ Quickstart Guide for OJS 3

How to Request a Journal from FLVC

Florida OJ is a service provided by the Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC) and the Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative (FALSC), Florida’s statewide library consortium.  The service is available through any Florida public university or state college library.

To request a journal, have your library send a completed Florida OJ Journal Request Form and Onboarding Packet to help@flvc.org .

FLVC/FALSC will set up your journal on the test server https://ojs.test.flvc.org and on the production Florida OJ site https://journals.flvc.org .  Turn around time is usually within one business day.

You journal will not appear on the homepage of Florida OJ, and you should send a separate request to get listed on the homepage, after you have styled your public pages and are ready to launch.  It is necessary to have an incoming link from the homepage in order for any public content to display.

First Steps:  Logging in to Florida OJ

  • Go to https://journals.flvc.org 
  • In the top right corner, click "Login" and enter your login information.
  • This takes  you to your home screen.  In the top left hand corner, there is a label reading "Open Journal Systems".  Clicking this gets you a list of all journals you are on in any capacity, including journals where you have previously submitted an article for consideration.  Click the name of any journal to get to settings and content for that journal.

First steps:  Setting up your new Journal

FLVC/FALSC will issue you a journal on Florida OJ.  Anyone working with your journal as a Journal Manager will have the ability to configure the software for a variety of publishing workflows.  (Your library liaison is a Journal Manager on your journal and is able to assist.)

Here are some resources to get you started in configuring the software.

If you want a simple page to hold finalized PDF files:

Visit PKP Schools and work through the online course “Setting Up a Journal in OJS 3”.  To get to this course, visit PKP Schools at http://pkpschool.sfu.ca/ , then click to "Courses" in the menu along the top of the page and select "Setting up a Journal in OJS 3".  The course requires registration, but there is no fee.  The registration is to prevent spam comments on course material.  This course takes about 2 hours to complete and takes you through the journal settings that determine how the journal pages will look to the public (ie. colors, banner image, etc.) and through setting up the journal to better interact with search engines and better display for research (ie. entering an ISSN, setting up keywords for search, etc.).

Next, this Quickstart Guide has instructions on uploading PDFs (or other format) of back issues.

If you want to use publishing workflows in Florida OJ (ie. accept author submissions, perform anonymous reviews):

Think through the following questions:

  • How will you solicit content?
  • What are the terms for the journal's publication agreements with authors?  (Will the journal use Creative Commons licenses?  Florida OJ settings can be adjusted to get the license from authors and display a Creative Commons license to search engines.)
  • How will you recruit peer reviewers?
  • Who will do copy editing and proofreading?
  • What is the administrative structure of the journal?  Editorial board?  Advisory board?

Visit PKP Schools and work through the online courses “Setting Up a Journal in OJS 3” and "Editorial Workflow in OJS 3".  To get to these courses, visit PKP Schools at http://pkpschool.sfu.ca/ , then click to "Courses" in the menu along the top of the page and select the course.  Courses require registration, but there is no fee.  The registration is to prevent spam comments on course material.  "Setting up a Journal in OJS 3" covers basic set up of a journal's look and feel and settings that better share out material to search engines.  It brushes on the editorial review settings.  "Editorial Workflow in OJS 3" in particular covers in more detail how to implement a desired workflow in the software.  The best way to approach publishing is to clearly plan out the workflow you want (using the questions above), and then click through to implement it in the software.

First Steps:  Colors and Layout

1.  Log into the software, and go to the admin page for your journal.  This is https://journals.flvc.org/yourjournalurl/management .
2.  In the left hand column, click to "Settings", then "Website".  This takes you to the main page with your site's color and banner image.
3.  Look at the drop down menu for "Theme".  At this time, 4 themes are available for OJS 3.  All are anticipated to be available on the production site at the time of the upgrade.  Try out different themes, save the changes, then go to the journal's public view ( https://journals.flvc.org/yourjournalurl/ ) and press CTRL+F5 to refresh the page.
4.  Each theme will have a color picker area. This is labeled "Colour".  You can click on the colored box under the "Colour" heading, and then select a color that you would like to use with the theme.  Try saving a new color, then go to the journal's public view ( https://journals.flvc.org/yourjournalurl/ ) and press CTRL+F5 to refresh the page.
5.  Each theme has a banner image.  This is labeled "Logo".  Try out uploading a logo for the theme you'd like, then go to the journal's public view ( https://journals.flvc.org/yourjournalurl/ ) and press CTRL+F5 to refresh the page.
Here are recommended banner image sizes for each theme:

  • Default Theme:  Banner image should be 80 pixels high.  There is no recommended width, but 600 pixels seems to look good on most browsers.
  • Health Sciences Theme:  Banner image should be 80 pixels high.  There is no recommended width, but 600 pixels seems to look good on most browsers.
  • Immersion Theme:  Banner image should be 135 pixels high.  There is no recommended width, but 600 pixels seems to look good on most browsers.
  • Classic Theme:  Banner image should be 50 pixels high.  There is no recommended width, but 600 pixels seems to look good on most browsers.
  • Additionally, we recommend that you keep a larger version of your banner image handy in your records, in case you would like to change to a new theme and resize the image.

Tips on specific themes:

Customizing the "Default Theme"

Making the homepage image smaller:  Out-of-the-box, the Default Theme makes the homepage image very large.  In order to make the banner image smaller, follow instructions here https://github.com/FLVC/FloridaOJcss and upload the following template stylesheet to your journal as "Journal style sheet" https://github.com/FLVC/FloridaOJcss/blob/master/TemplateStyleSheet_DefaultTheme_JournalHomepageImageChanges.css .

Customizing the Classic Theme

Adding a search box:  While other themes have a "Search" link built into the theme, the Classic Theme does not.  In order to add a link to search, you have to add an item to the navigation menu across the top of the screen.  To add this:  Log in and go to your journal's logged in view, Click to "Settings" "Website", Click to the "Navigation Menus" tab, Click the arrow next to "Primary Navigation Menu" then click "Edit" in the menu that opens, Click and drag "Search" from the "Unassigned Menu Items" to "Assigned Menu Items", and click "Save".

First Steps: Planning for Journal Display on the Florida OJ Homepage

The homepage of Florida OJ shows a thumbnail image for each journal and a brief description of the journal.  You can see this at https://journals.flvc.org/ .

3.  Click to "Settings" then "Website".
4.  Under the heading for "Journal thumbnail", click to upload an image.  Recommendations for format and size are: a .png or .jpg file that is 170 pixels wide and between 170 and 300 pixels tall.
5.  Click "Save".

To set the journal description that appears on the Florida OJ homepage:

1.  Log in.
2.  Click to the admin page for your journal.  (  https://journals.flvc.org/yourjournalurlhere/management )
