question about ojs eligibility

Postby mocharl » Fri Apr 21, 2006 8:42 am


We are interested in OJS as a way to track and manage our submissions and review process. However, we already have our archives on line, with newer issues available only to subscribers, and those from three years ago or earlier free to all. So my question is, can we still implement OJS without doing the open access part of the program?

Thank you for any information.

Hi mocharl,

Yes, OJS supports subscription-based, limited open access, and full open access models. The best way to get back issues into OJS is the XML import tool, although there is also a manual process if you don't have experience with XML. If you already have a publishing system you're happy with, you're not required to use OJS's publishing features -- some users simply use OJS for management and rely on existing systems for online publishing.
