Planning for OJS 3

Our planned upgrade to OJS 3 will enable new functionality and an updated look and feel for University of Calgary-hosted journals.  However, OJS 3 does feature a significantly different workflow.  For journal managers and editors used to OJS 2, learning OJS 3 will require some adjustment and study.
