Problem of Managing the Journal

Postby Joesitou » Tue Sep 18, 2012 10:00 pm


I'm writing to enquiry that if I apply an account in journal A in Multi-journal system, I use this account to login in the site, I also can visit the content of journal B. How to setup to prevent that happen?

I have set the step 4. Managing the Journal, enable Additional Site and Article Access Restrictions.
Users must be registered and log in to view the journal site
Users must be registered and log in to view open access content.

But I register a user to Journal A, I can user this user to log in to Journal B and access content of Journal B.
Please help me to fix it. Thanks a lot.

Best Regards,
