ALPSP Journals Collection is now online.
The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), an organization whose goal is to disseminate academic and professional information, has announced that the ALPSP Learned Journals Collection (ALJC) is now online. The collection contains 247 journals from 25 publishers.
ALJC enables small and medium-sized publishers to package their journals with a single umbrella license. According to the announcement, it spares customers the hassle of negotiating licenses and pricing with many publishers, allowing them to access the e-journals directly via SwetsWise. Swets Blackwell has orchestrated ALJC's complex licensing structure and also serves as its worldwide access and sales agent.
The 247 ALJC titles are available both in the full collection and in three discipline-specific packages: Medicine and Life Science (85 titles), Science and Technology (57 titles), and the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (129 titles). Pricing is based on a percentage of ALJC's current collective print value and is guaranteed for 3 years. Both print-plus-electronic and electronic-only options are available. Detailed pricing information is on the ALJC Web site (http://www.alpsp-collection.org).
