We have had a request from another university for a generic logon to one of our journals that requires user registration for viewing of the full text article. Is there a way to do this? *NOTE* this is not 'subscription'.

Hi gabriellegardiner,

Would IP-based subscriptions work? This would allow you to specify an IP range that will be assumed to have a subscription. Most universities will have a single IP range for all their workstations.

I don't know, is this relevant to user registrations, or just to subscriptions? The journal in question does not require subscription, just registration for the full text article.

Hi gabriellegardiner,

In that case, it's easiest to create a single account for users from that university. There aren't any problems with e.g. concurrent logins by the same user. FYI, if you want to skip the login process entirely for users from that university by IP range, it's possible to do so by writing a fairly simple plugin.
