Hello to all,
First of all: Thank you for OJS, its amazing and works great.
Now im looking for a Site to host monographs. The books are a mix between OA books and OA books after 2 years and some not OA Books.
Very important to me is the access by IP range and a open access after a certain time.
i found a very interresting post about institutional access on the old forum. But i don’t wanted to answer a 2 year old topic on the “old” website.
My questions are:
do the actual omp has an access by IP range instead of login
Does it come in the near future
Is it difficoult to add this feature and can you give me some advise to do that.
OMP doesn’t yet support IP-based access limitations, and actually, this is probably the first time we’ve been asked about it.
However, that’s a common requirement for OJS, and we’re working hard to prepare OJS 3.0b for release; OJS 3.0b and OMP share a tremendous amount of code.
We’re targeting subscription/IP-based access for a follow-up to OJS 3.0, which won’t be due for perhaps a year. Once that’s available, it’ll mean that IP-based access controls are either available in OMP, or can be very easily ported and applied there from the OJS codebase.
Long story short, if you need IP-based access control before then, you’ll need to find a local work-around. In order to do that, you’ll need to control access to a few functions in pages/catalog/CatalogBookHandler.inc.php – that’s where requests for the public-facing catalog for a particular book are handled.
