Summary:

"Note: Web platforms for publishing are not “sites” with static pages. If you need site with a plenty of information maybe you should consider creating a separate site.

[...]
 
Note: You should list the standard specifications that your platform should comply with and check what is the main purpose of what you want to do.  It is better to ask several people than use something that you do not need and later on do a huge work twice.
 
[...]
 
Note: You should take into consideration that web applications developed for storage of a large number of files use a lot of space out of public_html folder and that some hosting companies/IT departments are not willing/prepared to create account for you that will store out of public_html 20GB of data and just 100MB within public_html.  Prepare list of questions to hosting company/IT department and carefully read their replies to your questions before making any decision on hosting your web platform for OA.

Note: Lessons drawn from experience often say that it is needed more time than we think at the beginning since it is very important to do the job properly. If metadata, authors names and affiliations etc. are not done properly the readers can be confused and misinformed which is contrary of what we want to do.

[...]
 
Note: It is normal that journal in their history change  names, editorial policies, copyright policy, topics, supporters etc.  Sometimes journals do have different names for the same topic/section in journal. I have found several times that there is section Errata, Erratum, Corrigenda which actually describe the same thing or that publisher was changed.  Is there decision how to enter data in those cases?  Do we have consensus on that?"
