In order to begin, you must be running Open Journal Systems 3.1.0 or newer, and preferably OJS 3.1.2+. You must be able to install plugins, which requires server access or a Site Administrator role. (If you don’t have Site Administrator permissions, you can also request that the required plugins be installed by your Site Administrator or institutional service provider.)
If you are still running OJS 2.x, we recommend upgrading to OJS 3.x; however, if you are not yet ready to do this, inclusion may still be possible. Contact us for details.
If you are not sure what version of OJS you are running, see How do I determine my PKP software’s version?
