The polarization spectrum of OJ287 was obtained during the 1993/94 observing campaign within the OJ-94 International Collaboration. Data were taken on December 17-18-19/1993, an on Januarty 11-12/1994. Between both periods of observations, OJ287 showed minor flare activity, where brightness raised from V=15.75 to V=15.25, and the polarization degree varied between 0.5\% and 8\%. On the spectra taken on January 11, we have also observed large variations in the polarization angle $\sim 90^\circ$, associated with changes of $\sim$2\% in the polarization degreee. We have also observed the [OIII]5007 emission line; we investigate its appearance during changin brigthening conditions, and preliminary results will be presented.
