Assign the DOI prior to publishing the submission:

  1. Open the submission’s Publication tab
  2. Go to the Identifiers facet
  3. Click Assign, next to the DOI field
  4. Click Save.

Note: if you forget to assign the DOI prior to publication, you can perform these steps by editing the submission after publication.

Register the DOI with CrossRef:

  1. In the back end of OJS, click Tools in the left-hand menu
  2. Open the CrossRef XML Export Plugin in the list of Tools
  3. Click the Articles tab. Your newly published submission should appear at the top of the list with the status Not Deposited
  4. Click the checkbox for the submission
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Deposit
  6. Wait for the page to reload. If registration is successful, you have completed the process. If you get an error message, please notify the Digital Publishing Librarian.

Note: this must be performed by a user with the Journal Editor or Journal Manager role
