- Updates are vital for the proper functioning of your OJS site. Every OJS upgrade includes file changes and/or removal to fix vulnerabilities and bugs to help protect your OJS site. An outdated version of OJS leaves your Journal Management System at risk of malicious hacker attacks. Outdated, obsolete, abandoned, and inactive OJS plug-ins can also be a security risk. Additionally, these updates also contain the latest improvements and newest features to ensure you get the most out of your OJS. Furthermore, in order to be able to upgrade your current OJS to OJS 3.x, you will need to upgrade your OJS 2.3.x or older to an intermediate version of OJS 2.4.x. before being able to upgrade to OJS 3.x.
