This unit will show you two different ways that OJS allows you to create a masthead for your journal.
Whichever method you decide to use, this is an important step because it provides a public display of the editorial team for your journal. Most editors will likely be volunteers, so they need to have their efforts publicly recognized. And authors, reviewers, and readers will want to know who is involved before they make the committment to becoming part of your community. Getting this right is an important part of building a sustainable community around your journal.
Please read the Masthead section in the OJS User Guide.
Before making any changes, take a look at your journal’s masthead and how the names are displayed.
Next, login to your journal and change the masthead option from the default to alternative option and go ahead and create some titles and enroll some users.
Save your work and view the results on your “About” page.
Your editor called and needs you to add a section called “Multimedia”. Only Editors or Section Editors can submit, and author names shouldn’t be displayed. Can you do it?
How did you find the Masthead options? Did they make sense? Did you prefer one method over another? Why? Please post your comments below.
