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.

subscription for full text journal and individual articles

Postby sshjo » Tue Oct 26, 2004 11:28 pm

my aim of using this journal is to allow readers to read a free abstract of any article, i also want them to subscribe for the full text of the article but befor they get it they pay a specified amount of money.

restricted access to full text contents of my journal should be a main feature. After payment the subscriber can be able to view or download that particular article only.

i dont know how i can implement these features in ojs. pliiiz am new to journals help me pliiz.

OJS version 1.1.8 has the subscription process implemented. I'm not sure it works because I only saw this, not tested it, but there are a few subscription types default, and you can define what is of free access, if the subscription type is web only, print only or both.

There is also another interesting feature in this version where you can define a period of restricted access to content, in case of patent or just to wait until the printed version has been distributed, for example.

I suggest you upgrade and check these features out.
