What they say about our OJS Hosting ?

Our client from Poland, India, Italy, US, UK and other countries trust us for bringing value

Openjournaltheme was amazing to work with for our journal ENQ (ISSN : 2329-9339), immediately building trust and operating efficiently to address every one of our needs. Communication was fast and clear. Their ability to work with OJS was very high. We will be using them for all our future updates and journal needs – they have become a partner for us rather than a one-off service.

Managing OJS is not as simple as managing a WordPress site

Managing an OJS site is not as simple as when you manage a WordPress site. To become a journal with high quality and have a good security system, there are several aspects that must be handled to keep the performance of your OJS site stable.

Lack of experience or lack of training regarding OJS site management can lead to disaster. For example when you find your site to be very slow or when your site and articles are not indexed to google. Like it or not, this technical thing, of course, needs research to carry out the repair process on your OJS site.

We’ve rounded up some crucial things when you decide to manage your OJS site:

  • Perform regular OJS Improvements if there is a security issue in OJS released by PKP
  •  Create frequent backups of your site for safekeeping.
  • Scan your Journal routine for security threats, and react quickly to deal with any issues that arise.
  • Handle OJS performance optimization, to keep your site running fast at all times.
  • If your OJS site become populer , you must deal and protect the OJS from bad bot.
