  • OpenJournalSystems.com helped us debug our site which had run into issues after several slightly less than smooth upgrades and they went way above and beyond, not satisfied until they came up with a working solution. We are now on a new install of OJS and we are rid of problems which had plagued us for the last couple of years. I have no qualms about recommending their services to anyone using OJS to publish their content.
