OJS Publishing provides an extremely configurable editorial procedure. It allows a wide range of user roles. Every user role arises with a diverse form of approvals and aptitudes that are helpful at every stage of the production workflow. For instance, a user may need a proofreader role for a Copyediting stage. However, it is not essential during Submission, Review, or in the production phases. Presently, OJS provides 17 potential roles, which are important for journals assignment. Journals can use many different roles according to the requirements since all the users can have several roles in the same journal.
Moreover, OJS lets you integrate several other significant scholarly publishing services. The University Libraries can register such OJS content using Crossref, which assigns Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) to the journals, issues, and articles. DOIs eventually identify all the content and lets the readers find documents for the citations. The Libraries plans can easily add an ORCID integration that allows the faculty members to link their work with the personal ORCID profile.
OJS Publishing uses the Counter metric, which lets the publishers report usage in a reliable way. OJS gathers all the statistics on the journal, with relevant issues and articles. It allows the Libraries to create usage reports. Hence Libraries enroll these journals in Google Analytics for a managing aspect in the journal.
The Libraries offer planning, administrative, and technical aspect for journals utilizing OJS. Libraries personnel consult for the patent and metadata management, editorial and distributing workflow, receiving ISSNs and DOIs, and a wide variety of technical support questions. Presently, Open Content and Digital Publishing Librarian Micah Gjeltema, Copyright and Scholarly Communications Manager, Library Scholarly Publishing and User Interface Analyst, are working to support journals through the entire journal production process.
