Chapter 11: Tools

The Tools section can be accessed from the left sidebar menu.

Tools consist of an Import/Export tab and a Report Generator tab (called Statistics in OJS 3.1.1 and earlier).

Import/Export #

Import/Export allows you to easily get data out of your OJS journal and get data into it.

Some of the tools allow you to export to third-party systems, such as PubMed or the DOAJ. Others allow you to import or export user or article data.

For detailed instructions on importing and exporting see the Administrator’s Guide.

For more information on the Crossref XML Export Plugin, see the PKP Crossref Guide.

Report Generator #

The Report Generator page provides access to a variety of reports from your journal.

The system generates reports that track the details associated with site usage and submissions over a given period of time. Reports are generated in CSV format which requires a spreadsheet application to view.

  • PKP Usage Statistics Report: Provides basic usage statistics for your journal.
  • View Report: Provides a report on galley and abstract views by readers (i.e., how many times a PDF for an article has been viewed).
  • Articles Report: Provides a spreadsheet of all published articles.
  • COUNTER Reports: Provides COUNTER data.
  • Subscriptions Report: Provides a spreadsheet of subscription activity.
  • Review Report: Provides a spreadsheet of all review activity.

Use this feature to build your own reports.

More information on how to generate and manage statistics in OJS is provided in the Administrator’s Guide.
