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.

Site license pricing

I have a question for fellow journal managers that is not related to OJS exactly, but is an issue many OJS journals face: site licenses.

For subscription-based journals, how do you establish pricing for site licenses (i.e., an online subscription to an organization with a bunch of different locations)? The actual subscription management in OJS seems straightforward (just enter the subscriber's IP addresses), but how do others price such subscriptions? We have just launched our journal's website and already a government agency is asking us for an estimate for a site license. We have no idea how to proceed. Any suggestions?
