Last Friday, a concluding workshop by the DFG-funded project Funktionaler Ausbau von und Mehrwertdienste für “Open Journal Systems”/Functional Upgrading of and Added Value Services for “Open Journal Systems” – or “” for short – took place in Berlin.

With almost 15.000 iojs-berlin-13-9-20nstallations, OJS is the most frequently used software for the management of Open Access journals worldwide. The one-day workshop, which was attended by about 40 librarians, editors, software developers and scholars from all over Germany, gave an overview about the adjustments and enhancements for German journals developed by the Center für Digitale Systeme/Centre for Digital Systems at Berlin’s FU in collaboration with the Public Knowledge Project.

During her presentation, software developer Bozana Bokan introduced a couple of useful plugins for various areas:

Bokan finished by showcasing some elements of the public alpha version of OJS 3.0 which was released in mid-August. The new version represents a major rewrite of OJS to take advantage of the technologies that were pioneered in Open Monograph Press 1.0. It is planned for 2014.
