By implementing an SSL certificate, you can ensure a secure connection between your journal's website and your users, enhancing the security and integrity of your OJS platform and overall publication process.

I had been wanting to start an online journal for years but always found the technical setup to be daunting. That all changed when I found Infofacility 1-Click OJS Setup.

I was able to launch my journal in just a few minutes, without any technical knowledge or experience. The setup was seamless and the support team was always available to answer any questions I had.

Benefits of SSL for Your OJS Installation and Overall Publication:

  • Data Protection: SSL encryption ensures that all data exchanged between your OJS website and your users is encrypted and protected. This includes sensitive information such as login credentials, personal details, and manuscript submissions. By securing this data, you can build trust with your authors, reviewers, and readers, reassuring them that their information is safe from prying eyes.
  • Improved Security: An SSL certificate provides a layer of protection against various security threats, including data interception and tampering. It verifies the authenticity of your website and encrypts the data in transit, making it virtually impossible for malicious actors to intercept and manipulate the information exchanged between your OJS platform and your users.
  • Trust and Credibility: Displaying a padlock icon and the "https" protocol in the browser's address bar indicates to users that your website is secure. This visual indicator builds trust and credibility, assuring your readers that their interactions with your journal are protected and that you prioritize their privacy and security.
  • Compliance with Industry Standards: Many industry regulations and guidelines, such as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), require the use of SSL certificates when processing or transmitting sensitive personal data. By implementing SSL for your OJS installation, you ensure compliance with these standards and avoid potential legal and reputational risks.
  • SEO Benefits: Search engines, like Google, prioritize websites with SSL certificates in their search rankings. Having an SSL certificate for your OJS website can give you a competitive advantage and improve your visibility in search results, driving more traffic and readership to your journal.
  • Protection Against Phishing Attacks: SSL certificates include verification of your website's identity, protecting your users from phishing attempts. This verification assures users that they are accessing the authentic version of your journal's website, mitigating the risk of falling victim to fraudulent websites masquerading as your publication.

Here are some compelling statistics that highlight the importance of SSL certificates for OJS installations:

  • According to a study by Google, 94% of users are more likely to trust websites that display a secure connection with SSL certificates. By implementing SSL for your OJS installation, you instill confidence in your users, encouraging them to engage with your journal and submit their valuable research.
  • Research has shown that 85% of internet users actively look for the padlock icon or "https" in the address bar before providing personal information or engaging with a website. By securing your OJS platform with an SSL certificate, you signal to potential authors, reviewers, and readers that their data is protected and can be shared safely.
  • Google has announced that SSL certificates are a ranking signal in its search algorithm. Websites with SSL are more likely to rank higher in search results, which can lead to increased visibility and discoverability of your journal's content.
  • The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires organizations to implement appropriate security measures to protect personal data. SSL encryption is considered a critical security measure for data protection, helping you comply with GDPR guidelines when handling sensitive information within your OJS platform.
  • Studies have shown that implementing SSL certificates can lead to improved user engagement metrics. Users are more likely to spend time exploring your OJS journal, accessing multiple articles, and returning for future visits when they feel confident about the security of their interactions

By integrating an SSL certificate into your OJS installation, you not only prioritize the security and privacy of your users but also enhance the credibility and trustworthiness of your journal.
