Wiley Journals Package Negotiation

DATE: Sat, 31 Jan 2015

As some of you may be aware,  the library has subscribed to over 1,300 academic journals published by John Wiley through a package agreement negotiated centrally on behalf of all CSUs. Unfortunately, after extensive negotiations, the CSU reluctantly decided against renewing the contract with Wiley due to the unmanageable proposed cost increase of 10-12% (depending on the campus). To read more about the details contributing to this decision, please see the statement by the CSU Council of Library Deans,  Equitable Access, Public Stewardship, and Access to Scholarly Information

Here at the Tanimura & Antle Family Memorial Library, we will conduct an analysis of heavily used titles from Wiley throughout the coming year. During this time, users will still be able to access backfiles of Wiley journals through the end of 2014. In addition, many Wiley titles are also available via Ebsco Academic Search Premier, albiet with a twelve to eighteen month embargo. As always, our List of Journal Titles indicates journals to which we subscribe in full text. For those needing Wiley articles published in 2015, please use Interlibrary Loan.

Negotiation for 2016 will begin in the latter months of this year. If you have questions, please feel free to contact the librarian subject selector in your subject area.
