OJS should be used for subscription-based journals too?

Postby kocsort » Fri Feb 07, 2014 2:27 am

We just heard about the Open Journal System software and according to all information we read it seems to be extremely useful and user-friendly software for online submitting and peer-reviewing.
We are a small Publisher, but our journals are NOT freely available, they are NOT open accessed.
The submitting and peer-review system we use right now is very expensive for us and we are wondering if could be possible to use your Open Journal System software as an alternative solution. I read the license but it is still unclear for me if this Open Journal System software should/should not be used for subscription-based journals?!
Thank you in advance!

Hi Tibor,

There is no requirement that journals published with OJS be made open access; there's a suite of subscription management tools for subscription journals too. We encourage open access, but journals are free to do what they like.
