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.

We are interested in OJS as a way to track and manage our submissions and review process. However, we already have our archives on line, with newer issues available only to subscribers, and those from three years ago or earlier free to all. So my question is, can we still implement OJS without doing the open access part of the program?

Thank you for any information.

Hi mocharl,

Yes, OJS supports subscription-based, limited open access, and full open access models. The best way to get back issues into OJS is the XML import tool, although there is also a manual process if you don't have experience with XML. If you already have a publishing system you're happy with, you're not required to use OJS's publishing features -- some users simply use OJS for management and rely on existing systems for online publishing.
