Older articles in some Open Access journals are locked

There are cases where a journal is labelled as Open Access but has some articles locked. This can happen when a journal used to be a subscription based journal but was later changed to the Open Access model. When this occurs older articles that were published when the journal was subscription-only retain that access type and are not changed to Open Access.
