ALPSP and Swets Announce Launch of 2010 ALJC Collection

The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP; www.alpsp.org) and Swets (www.swets.com), a subscription services company, announced the launch of the 2010 ALPSP Learned Journals Collection (ALJC; www.alpsp-collection.org). With a total of 824 titles making up the full set, 88 titles are new to the collection. The 2010 ALJC package offers the availability of nine subject-specific collections and an unparalleled amount of affordable, high-quality electronic content. Four new publishers agreed to make their titles available in the 2010 collection: IM Publications, iMedPub, Lawrence & Wishart, and The Way, bringing the number of participating publishers to 48.

Initiated by ALPSP in 2003, the ALJC is a unique cooperation that enables small and medium-sized publishers to sell their titles effectively to consortia and other library customers. The range of content from the ALJC is supplied to customers through a single umbrella license, pricing model, and delivery platform. The complex licensing and legal structure of this cross-publisher initiative is coordinated by Swets, also servicing the worldwide sales, marketing, and online content access channels for the collection. Rather than dealing with a large number of publishers individually, library customers can access all of the high-quality, full-text ejournals simply and directly through SwetsWise Online Content or through ALJC's own web portal.
