Hello all, one of my journals is currently toll access and would like to adopt a hybrid OA model using APCs.
I’ve been investigating in the back end of OJS (currently running 18.104.22.168) and doing a little web searching about this. It seems that there’s no way to configure the submission and payment systems for hybrid OA - or am I mistaken?
The APC option in
Payment > Payment Types only seems to allow for a global application of APCs to all submissions. As for as I can tell, there’s no way to request or receive ad hoc payments in
Payment > Payment Types or in
Distribution > Payments.
It appears, then, to implement a hybrid OA model using APCs, the editors would have to:
- State the option for making articles OA via APC;
- Request manual payment outside the OJS platform;
- Manually declare the articles as OA via the issue Table of Contents.
Does that sound right? Am I missing anything here?
