policy & technical issues: Handling past subscribers

Postby yhan » Wed Mar 14, 2012 1:57 pm

Hello, All,

We have a subscriber who asked this question:

In case that we cancel our subscription in the future, do we retain access to the material published during the subscription?

So my questsions are:
1. In the policy level, how do you handle this?
allow past subscriber to access the materials they had access before?

2. In the technical level, how do you handle this? sending them all the files? or another approach

Thanks much,
yhan

Hi yhan,

This is actually an option that you can configure in OJS under:
Journal Management => Subscriptions => Subscription Policies

On the Subscription Policies page, you will find the following:

Subscription Expiry

Select one of the following:

[*] Full expiry
- Readers are denied access to all subscription content upon subscription expiry.

[ ] Partial expiry
- Readers are denied access to recently published subscription content, but retain access to subscription content published prior to the subscription expiry date.

Cheers,
Michael
