Working together, the Samvera Community creates sustainable solutions using a common infrastructure within which there is the flexibility to tailor solutions to local demands and workflows.We recognize that our editors will need personalized support as they learn to use and customize OJS 3 to fit their editorial needs.We plan to meet with each journal individually before next spring to discuss the migration timeline in depth and provide each editorial team with one-on-one training.In addition to offering a more flexible interface for customizing each journal’s homepage, OJS 3 enables editors to easily tailor the editorial workflow to their journal’s specific needs and processes.OJS 3 was developed after extensive usability testing with both authors and editors and, as a result, the new system provides more flexible permissions and less restrictive author registration requirements. OTS will enable editors to publish their journals in full-text HTML as well as PDF.
