Usage of Institutional Subscriptions

Postby janer » Fri Aug 30, 2013 1:14 am

We have fairly recently begun recruiting institutional subscribers to our journal ie universities. We have a 12-month delay period on full open access.

One university has requested usage stats for its subscription, ie how many times within a particular period, people from the relevant IP addresses are logging in to our website. Is this possible please?

Many thanks,

Hi janer,

Not through OJS's logging facilities -- but the web server logs (e.g. Apache logs) generally contain IP addresses and these can be used to determine who is using the subscriptions. We're working on a stats reimplementation that will better capture this information and hope to release it in OJS 2.4.3.
