Institutional subscription with a gap in coverage

Postby aldrichmoodie » Fri May 24, 2013 12:51 pm

I have an institutional subscriber (via IP address) who subscribed for year 1, chose not to subscribe for year 2, and now is subscribing for year 3. How can I give them access to years 1 and 3 without access to year 2?

Many thanks,
Sarah Jones

Hi Sarah,

The OJS subscription system is designed to grant subscribers access to all content if they have a current/valid subscription.

However, you can modify OJS to suit your specific needs -- please see the following thread which includes code customization that may be helpful.

You would need to modify your installation of OJS as described (based on your version of OJS) and then include two separate institutional records for this subscriber, one that spans the publication dates of year 1 content, and a second record that spans the publication dates of year 3 content (for the subscription start and end dates).

Cheers,
Michael
