"Serials Price Projections for 2014"

Posted in Scholarly Journals, Serials Crisis on September 30th, 2013 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

EBSCO has released its "Serials Price Projections for 2014."

Here's an excerpt from the press release:

For 2014, the overall effective publisher price increases for academic and academic/medical libraries are expected to be in the range of 6 to 8 percent (before currency impact).

The projected mid-single digit serial price increases indicate that the ongoing initiatives and debates in the academic publishing world are having very little impact on fundamental business models and pricing strategies. Librarians and smaller publishers will continue to face difficult choices as the renewal of individual journal titles and other non-bundled content is balanced with the ongoing obligations of e-journal package or "Big Deal" content.
