Important Changes in 2018: Please note that PER is upgrading to OJS Version 3

Dear PER Users

The Potchefstroom Electronic Law Journal will be migrating from the present Open Access Online System (OJS 2) to the new and exciting OJS 3. This change will take place early in 2018 and all users must note the following, since all shall be affected.

1. It is IMPORTANT to all users to log in to review their registration/submission metadata, with the objective to ensure that their respective ORCIDs are recorded in the format: Those who do not have an ORCID can register for it at with ease.

2. In the first week of January 2018, emails will be sent to all users in preparation of an official launch of the new OJS 3 on 11 January 2018, especially to notify them about the new websites/URLs.

3. On Thursday 11 January 2018, the formal launch of OJS 3 with new PER website will take place and accordingly announced to users.

4. All new submissions from 11 January 2018 will go to the OJS 3 website, using the new PER URLs.

5. All existing submissions (including those between now and 10 January 2018) will continue on the present OJS 2 and gradually migrated to OJS 3 over 2 weeks.

6. On Wednesday 31 January 2018, the present OJS 2 site will be closed, provided any submissions still on this site will have been migrated to the new system (OJS 3).

7. Absolutely no need to panic since all users will be taken along as smoothly as possible.

Thank you for your continued interest in PER and we are looking forward to an exciting 2018.

Christa Rautenbach
