There are a number of components to your press found in the Settings menu on the left navigation bar. All of the site configuration options are under Settings > Press. The options you find here control every aspect of the press, including press information, how your press looks, workflow settings, and how the publication and distribution processes work. This section will go in-depth on your Press and Workflow Settings. Please refer to the Learning OJS guide for information regarding the Website and Distribution that will be applicable in your OMP installation.
In the Press Settings section, you can configure information about your press that will be displayed for readers, such as your press name, editorial team, and contact information. You can also set up and configure series and categories, which are used to display and organize your published monographs.
You can find the Settings in the left menu panel when you are logged in as a user with Press Manager permissions. This section contains most of the information that you provided when originally creating your press (and which can be modified at any time).
Enter and edit information about your press, including press name, editorial team, and about the press. All Masthead information will appear under pages in the About menu on your press website.
This section contains the primary contact information you provided when originally creating your press and includes a technical support contact option. You can also add a mailing address. All contact information will appear on the Contact page under the About menu on your press website.
Series can be used to help organize your publications. A series represents a special set of books devoted to a theme or topic. Visitors will be able to search and browse the press by series. In the Series tab of your Press Settings, you can create, edit, and order the series that will appear on your press website.
To add a series, click Add Series on the right corner of the Series table and fill in the following fields:
You can modify a series by clicking on the blue arrow to the left of the series name. This will reveal options to edit or delete the series.
To order your series, click Order on the right corner of the series box.
Using the double arrow beside the Series title, drag the series in order and click Done once you have completed ordering your series.
See the Catalog and Displaying Content chapter for instructions on how to add books to series.
Categories can be used to group and display books according to the subject matter or themes — for example, economics, literature, and poetry. Categories may be nested within “parent” categories in a hierarchy. Categories can be displayed as a browse block on your press site, and readers can select a category to view all books in that category.
You can place an article in a category by editing its metadata, which is explained in the Catalog and Displaying Content chapter. This section explains how to create and edit categories.
To display categories on your website you can go to Website Settings > Appearance > Sidebar Management and place the Browse block on your sidebar.
See the Catalog and Displaying Content chapter for instructions on how to add books to categories.
