Importing not open acces back issues

Postby ntorres » Tue Dec 11, 2007 3:50 am

I'm using the import/export plugin to import old issues to Subscription Journal in OJS.
Following instructions in native dtd, I use the <access_date> and not open_access an write an xml like this:

<issue published="true" current="false">
<title>Núm.: 10</title>
<title locale="en_US">Articles</title>
<abbrev locale="en_US">ART</abbrev>
<article> .. </article>
<article> .. </article>

I import the issue ok but it's open access. If as editor i go to view "issue data" of this Back Issue, on "Access" section I can read Access status and Open access date. The date it's ok but the status is "Open Access" and not "Subscription".
How can I include this information on the xml to import? Must I chabge it manually from each issue imported?

Hi ntorres,

There is a patch for this at http://pkp.sfu.ca/cvs/cvsweb.cgi/ojs2/plugins/importexport/native/NativeImportDom.inc.php.diff?r1=1.40;r2=1.41; you'll need to make sure that your journal has subscriptions enabled in Setup. For previously-imported issues that were erroneously flagged as Open Access, you can correct them manually as Editor in the Issue's "Issue Data" page.
