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.

batch importing subscribers?

I'm not finding a way through the existing XML batch import process to import a journal's subscriber list. Is this correct? I have a journal that wants delayed open access and that current access will be given to the association's membership. It looks like we'll have to hand enter all those people into the subscription module, correct?

Many thanks,

Hi Jennifer,

Yes, there's currently no method within OJS to do this, although we have filed it as a possible future enhancement to the import process.
