Preparing the content

The first task that presents itself is preparing the existing back issues of Amicus Curiae that reside in SAS-Space for ingest into the new OJS system.
The first thing that has presented itself is some wrinkles in the metadata; wrinkles that are easy to miss in a repository setting, but on which OJS will rely to order the journal by volume and issue, and so ruthlessly expose.
The second issue has been 'missing' items; articles that whatever reason were not deposited in SAS-Space at the time, but which create very obvious gaps when presented in the new way - so a happy by-product of preparing for OJS has been cleaner data and a good few new articles for the repository.
We should have finished this particular job by the end of June.
