    Folio Magazine
    To gate or not to gate? That is the age-old question — especially for publishers within membership associations — when it comes to positioning digital content. Should the website be reserved for members only, and promoted as a benefit of joining the association? Should it be open-access, positioned to bring in new readers and convert them to membership? Should it serve as an advocate for the industry- or profession-at-large, informing the general public in a way that dovetails with the association's mission?
