The Import/Export Data feature, available from Journal Management, allows the Journal Manager to inject data into and extract data from OJS.
Data import/export is implemented using plugins, with each format or type of data being provided by a different plugin. For more information, refer to each plugin's documentation, found within OJS' plugin directory.
Five Import/Export plugins ship with OJS, and are documented below.
