Registration Notification Plugin | OJS Hacking and Security Solutions

Release Date: Jan/2/2017


OpenJournalSytems.com is proud to announce the release of the OJS Registration Notification Plugin, a security plugin aim to verify or block new user registration.

Recently, there has been a sharp increase in OJS hacking incidents (See Recent Article). This has posed a very difficult challenge to Public Knowledge Project (PKP) to improve the security of their programs. This hacking has made it vital for publishing institutions using Open Journal Systems to beef up their security against a wide variety of threats. This challenge is what lead OpenJournalSystems.com to create the OJS Registration Notification Plugin for its clients.

The OJS Registration Notification Plugin will send an email notification to a predetermined email address whenever a user has been registered for a journal. This email will contain the name of the registrant, the journal and role(s), and an option to delete the user from OJS. This plugin will enable the JM/Admin to verify or block the registration of any new user. Attackers/hackers posing as an author will be unable to register and upload malwares to harm your OJS. The OJS Registration Notification Plugin takes 5 minutes to install and configure.
