Mixing 'pay-to-view' and open access

Postby janer » Fri Apr 08, 2011 4:34 am


In version 2.3.3, is it possible to configure an option that requires pay-to-view for some contents - ie the main papers - whereas other material such as Editorial, Book Reviews etc would remain on open access? I have read through the Userguide sections on Payments and Subscriptions several times, but can't spot any option that would allow this.

Thanks very much,

Hi Janer,

Yes, you need to set the issue as a whole as subscription-based (in Issue Data) and then in the table of contents set each article access status as either 'Default' (requires subscription) or 'Open' (no subscription required).
