EBSCO Rolls Out 2016 Serials Price Projections

EBSCO Information Services introduced its “Serials Price Projections for 2016,” which notes that the overall effective publisher price increases for academic and medical libraries is expected to be 4%–6% before currency impact. EBSCO surveyed a wide range of publishers and reviewed historical serials pricing data to calculate the projections. The company will update them if economic conditions change.

“[T]he increased library budgets are not keeping the pace with the increase in serials costs and libraries are working to ensure they are receiving the greatest value for spend,” the press release states. Libraries must carefully analyze their content purchases, and econtent and packaged content are prevailing over print materials and individual subscriptions, respectively. “E-journal packages are still consuming a significant proportion of library materials budgets and most large publishers remain focused on selling some form of bundled e-package content.”

For more information, read the press release.
