Open Journal Systems Customization and Development
OpenJournalSystems.com has years of experience crafting OJS themes, customizing OJS workflow, and creating OJS plug-ins. We can create a perfect ensemble of design and functionality for OJS that will transform your publishing project. From enterprise publishers to colleges and universities, you will be able to leverage our technical expertise and customization services so you can focus on creating quality open access publishing that is accessible to everyone.
Complete OJS customization is what we are here for. We can customize nearly any OJS feature, but there are three major categories of customization:
- THEMES: The look
- WORKFLOW: The productivity
- PLUG-INS: The features
OJS Theme Customization is more than just fancy graphics: we will provide you with a custom look that identifies your unique brand. We will remove the “one template fits all” approach of OJS pre-made themes and provide you with a custom facelift for your OJS site. A lot of thought and care has gone into creating our OJS themes in order to ensure they are clean, flexible, and visually appealing to make sure your journal gets noticed!
All of our OJS themes are mobile friendly and natively responsive, 100% plug-in based, and installable in less than 5 minutes. Furthermore, all our OJS themes include free installation and post installation 24/7 support. “Responsive” means the website is automatically optimized for different screen sizes and devices including mobile (change the width of the journal browser to see how this changes the layout). This responsiveness will allow your target visitors to view your website on any device.
We Offer a Large Selection of Theme Choices and Multiple Layout Options
CLASSIC THEMES: The Classic OJS Theme collection is great for journal start-ups and small-to-medium-size publishers across a broad range of fields and industries. Our Classic OJS Theme is custom designed to harness the highest functionality and create the best possible user experience. It’s perfect for publishers looking for an affordable, clean, streamlined, and practical OJS theme to present their journal contents in a professional and elegant way.
MODERN THEMES: Our Modern OJS Themes are designed with precision to take your publishing to the next level. These themes are crafted on a modular and responsive, developer-friendly Bootstrap foundation and are an ideal choice for publishers who appreciate quality design. Our Modern Themes are esthetically refined, professional, creative, and captivating. Furthermore, Modern Themes are customizable from the theme plug-in setting and capable of empowering journal managers of any skill level to make changes without having to write a line of code.
CUSTOM OJS THEMES: Our OJS Custom Theme design services will transform Open Journal Systems into almost any layout or creative solution design you require for your publishing enterprise. Using cutting-edge technology for OJS theme development, our expert designers can craft a custom theme for you that is not only stunningly visually appealing, but also provides the look and feel you desire within a well-structured framework. With WordPress-like functionality, Custom OJS Themes are not just a design, but include many added capabilities such as: Menu Customization, Sliders, Headers, Footers, Static Page Design, Sidebar Customization, and more. This involves creating a framework to implement all the power and flexibility of a Content Management System (CMS) and transforms OJS into an advanced journal management system for enterprise-level publishing. These features allow for greater flexibility and better functionality; it will take your Open Journal Systems to a new professional level.
OJS Workflow Customization is intended to tailor and streamline the Manuscript Tracking System within OJS. It redefines how every manuscript submitted to your journal is handled during the peer-review and editing stages. We specialize in analyzing your OJS workflow requirements and translating those processes into your OJS platform. This is vital in reducing training time, increasing familiarity with the system, and creating a cost-effective model for your publishing. The goal is to provide a custom, intuitive platform that works for you. Our four-step process is simple yet effective:
- STRATEGY: We analyze your current workflow requirements and suggest ways to improve your process
- PLANING: We create a visual representation of the new workflow by creating a wireframe
- BUILDING: We start with the development of your project and provide continuous updates to ensure that the project is always moving in the right direction
- SUPPORT: We provide post-implementation debugging and support to ensure successful implementation
OJS Plug-In Customization helps to streamline the publication process and allows Open Journal Systems to expand its functionality without altering the OJS core program. OJS plug-ins are small snippets of code that can help you easily add new features which will be essential for the success of your OJS publishing website.
We have many years of experience and expertise in creating custom OJS plug-ins, upgrading existing plug-ins, and supporting all of the plug-ins that you are using. Our company has designed and developed a variety of custom OJS plug-ins including 100s of theme plug-ins, an HTML editor plug-in for articles, an article graphic metrics plug-in, a PayPal Pro plug-in, slideshows/slider plug-ins, carousel plug-ins, newsletter subscription plug-ins, and many more!
