Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Restricting supplemental materials access

In one section of our journal, supplemental information to an article will include student assignments and their answer keys. My board is wondering if there is anyway to "bury" the answer key - make it more difficult to find in google searches or restrict access to this information in any way. Anyone have experience with restricting access in this way?

FYI - The overall access to the journal requires a reader create an account to see full text articles.

Hi Kelly,

If you are accepting those results as supplementary files rather than article files, you simply don't have to publish the supplementary files themselves -- that is, you don't need to upload a supplementary file galley. Otherwise, you can either scrub the files before uploading as galleys, or tweak the access restrictions, in Journal Setup Step 4.
