Project Muse Announces New Titles and New Collection

Project MUSE, an online provider of scholarly journals in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, announced that, to date, more than 20 new journals are confirmed for inclusion in its online journal collections for 2006. Among the new titles are several from the Edinburgh University Press, which is new to Project MUSE. Project MUSE also said it is adding a sixth journal collection—the Premium Collection, with new publishers and new journals. Its current Full Collection will be re-named the Standard Collection beginning in 2006.

In line with Project MUSE's commitment to a 6 percent cap on annual price increases through 2007 for existing collections, the 2006 list price for the Standard Collection will be $20,100. It is expected that the Premium Collection will offer more than 25 additional journals from both current and new publishers in MUSE's core areas of the arts, humanities, and social sciences with a 2006 list price of less than $25,000. Further details on 2006 subscription options will be posted on MUSE's site ( during July, with subscribers notified by e-mail as information becomes available. Final title lists for the five existing collections are expected by Aug. 1, 2005, and the final list for the Premium Collection is expected by September 2005.

Project MUSE also announced that it has begun depositing metadata into the CrossRef database and has made DOIs available for each article. CrossRef is a collaborative reference linking service with a mission to be the "citation linking backbone for all scholarly information in electronic form."

Project MUSE, which is managed by the Johns Hopkins University Press in collaboration with the Milton S. Eisenhower Library at Johns Hopkins University and the participating publishers, currently provides online access to more than 270 titles from some 50 publishers to nearly 1,200 subscribing libraries worldwide.
