  1. 严格遵循OJS theme plugin的接口进行主题开发,便于OJS后续的升级与维护
  2. 由于OJS 2.x的版本是一个基于table的布局,所以bootstrap不是很适合。另外Jquery的版本过低也是不用bootstrap的原因
  3. 注意文章终端页样式,这里容易遗漏
  4. 模版最好做到唯一源,同样内容不得多次多处修改


在导航栏(Navigation Bar)里添加定制链接

Under Section 5.5: Navigation Bar, you can add a Navigation Bar link to the current set at the top of every journal page. This can be an in-site link (for example, linking directly to a Submission page), or an external link (linking to a journal sponsor’s website).

An interesting use of additional navigation links is to add a blog or wiki for your journal, allowing for more interaction with your readers, and the development of an online community.

For example, if your OJS site is at and you have an associated blog at, you can add a link to that blog from the navigation bar.

OJS 2.4.8 中对已出版文章删除的正确操作

版本: OJS 2.4.8

如果有这种情况,对于已经分配于卷期的文章要做“删除”处理: 一般编辑会在当前卷期内移除,这时候前台的该卷期不再会显示该文章。

实际上呢,该文章并没有被彻底删除,而是被转移到了存档(Archives)中, 如果编辑没有存档的意图,只是用了Quick submission 插件,最好在存档中彻底删除该文章,做一个有效的清理。
