Project MUSE Adds Titles, Announces Pricing

Project MUSE (http://muse.jhu.edu), an online collection of scholarly journals in the humanities, the social Sciences, and the arts, announced new journals joining the project in 2004, as well as preliminary subscription price estimates for collections to be offered in 2004. Among its new participating publishers for 2004, MUSE announced its first collaborations with international partners: new participating publishers include the University of Toronto Press and the Indian Institute for Population Studies (Thailand). The "2004 Full Collection," including all of the current titles plus the newly announced journals, will have an annual subscription fee of no more than $20,000. According to the press release, this is "less than an 18 percent increase from the current year's subscription rate."

It also announced a new Flex-Plan Subscription Option for consortia. Starting with 2004 subscriptions, library consortia will be able to design and tailor MUSE collections to best meet their needs and budgets. Under the new Flex Plan, the consortium may select a customized package of at least 100 MUSE journals, to which all the libraries in the group will have access. A minimum of five libraries in the consortium is required to qualify for discounts. Discounts will be tiered based upon the number of participating libraries and the number of journals in the custom collection, with a maximum discount of 30 percent. Individual libraries will retain the ability to upgrade their subscription to the MUSE Full Database collection outside of the consortium arrangement.

Managed by the Johns Hopkins University Press, in collaboration with the Milton S. Eisenhower Library at Johns Hopkins University and the participating publishers, Project MUSE currently provides online access to over 200 titles from some 30 publishers to its nearly 1,000 subscribing libraries worldwide.
