pay per issue

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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.

Hi,

we would like to let users purchase a whole issue rather than an article. Is there a way to do this ?

Thanks,

Marie

Hi Marie,

Yes -- the 2.4.x line of releases supports "issue galleys", where you can upload a PDF for an entire issue. If you're using OJS 2.3.x, you'll need to upgrade first.

Hi Alec,

Thanks,
We use OJS 2.4.*

I've found how to activate this (payment>reader fees>Purchase Issue), I hadn't see it before, because the french translation isn't complete.
But I can't find where the user have to go to buy the issue :?

Regards,
Marie

Hi Marie,

Once you upload your issue galleys and publish the issue, there will appear a "Full Issue" section above the table of contents with links to issue galleys available to readers.

If a reader clicks on an issue galley link, but does not have a subscription, they will be taken to the purchase issue page where they can pay for the issue (similar to purchase article process).

Please ensure that you've enabled the following setting in Setup => 4. Management:
[x] Always show galley links and indicate restricted access.

This will ensure that there are links for issue and article galleys for readers on the main table of contents page.

Cheers,
Michael

Hi Michael,

thanks, I was looking for a place like the subscription page. I wouldn't have found it without you :o

But there's still a little problem... I've set a price to issues, but everyone can access the pdf. If I create a new user, he can download the file without any payment :?

thanks,
Marie

Hi Marie,

If you haven't already done so, you'll need to set the access status for the issue to subscription-only: as Editor, go to the Issue Data page for the issue to set it.

Cheers,
Michael
