Article publication fee based on number of pages

The Fee Payment Options allow journal manager to set up flat fees for several categories. Our journal page charges are based on number of pages instead of flat fee per article. How do I set this up? Thank you.

Hi Paul,

This is currently not possible in OJS, but I have filed it as a feature enhancement for the payment system.

A possible workaround may be to enable both the flat-rate publication fee as well as donations under Payments and then ask authors to complete both the flat-rate payment as well as a (variable) donation payment that will be specific to their publication -- although I realize this may be cumbersome and less than ideal.

An issue with this workaround this is that for fees paid by institutions/grants, they may question the "donation" made as a page charge. I'm not sure whether this is an issue though - does anyone have experience with this?

I too would like to see configurable payment options for publication/page charges.
