OJS Development Priorities Survey

PKP Technical Committee Survey about development priorities for Open Journal Systems.

The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) Technical Committee invites you to participate in a survey to help us identify and prioritize community development priorities from OJS journal editors and managers.

We have reviewed and consolidated Open Journal Systems (OJS) feature requests that have been recorded in the past two years in the PKP Community Forum, PKP GitHub repository, and collected by members of the PKP community.  While many of the features identified in this survey may be in progress or under consideration for the PKP Roadmap, we would like your help to determine which of these are the most important to journal editors and managers, and to identify any that may not have been included.

The results of this survey will help the PKP Technical Committee better understand what proposed features are most important to journal editors and managers using OJS, and will inform our recommendations to PKP for future planning and development.

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact PKP Technical Committee Chair, Sonya Betz, at sonya.betz(@)ualberta.ca.


Completing the Survey

This survey will ask you first to score general categories of improvements, and then to evaluate specific features only within the three categories you rank as most important.

Emails supplied voluntarily through this survey will be used only by members of the Technical Committee for the sole purpose of communicating with the participants regarding the survey, and will not be shared beyond the members of the Technical Committee.
