Newbie: Articles not being made open access when specified

Hi,

Apologies for the vague problem formulation, but I am new to OJS and don't really know how to start debugging this issue.

A journal that uses our system has complained that 12 months after they published their journal, it has not been made open access (12 months being the amount of time they specified). Now, they moved over from our staging environment to our production environment in the middle of this period, so I'm pretty confident that this is a once off error, due to data migration, however, for good order's sake, I would like to have a look in the database and see what's going on.

Unfortunately, I'm completely new to OJS and don't know where to begin with this. How is this private period and its expiration modelled in the db? Which models interact with this data? Any help would be much appreciated. We are on OJS 2.3.8.

Hi rmchugh,

Start by logging in as Editor and looking at the Back Issues list. Find your problem issue, edit it, look at the Issue Data page. There's an Open Access date there that may be set incorrectly.
