Suffix creation problem for new member

“crossref xml plugin for ojs” step by step guide is needed for new members . " export / import tool on Dash board" is not clear .

Hello @GVYT00,

You can find some details for setting up you OJS instance with the Crossref in documentaion here:

I hope this helps, if you have further questions then unfortunately, OJS is not our system so we’re limited in how much we can help you in its use.

You can learn more at PKP’s Crossref OJS Manual, plus there’s a very active PKP Community Forum which has more information on how to modify your OJS instance to submit metadata and register DOIs with Crossref.

Alternatively you can contact the Support team at PKP, the organization responsible for the Open Journal System (OJS).
