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.

Dear Sir,

We now have a problem on subscription.
Our journal is open accessed to all reader inside our country (China) but should be subscribed for the readers outside our country according to the contract between IOP and us.
But we have trouble to discrimminate the readers inside or outside country. It will be a very big problem to add every IP address inside our country to the subscription list. At the same time, we have a free access for the first month of new issue published to all readers and we don't know how to realize this too.

Would you please give me some suggestions?

Hi Xianghua,

There has already been discussion on how to subscribe entire countries here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3859#p14937. However, I would agree that it would be a great deal of work to do this for the entire country of China.

Regarding your second question: you could always publish an issue as open access (see the access option in Issue Data); and then when a month is up, manually switch the access to Subscription.
