Nature price hike van Sickle, Jennifer 05 Nov 2003 20:03 UTC

Dear SERIALST-ers,

We've been notified that our print subscription to Nature will increase
by about 30% for 2004.  Given that we (and other libraries) continue to
pay a substantial additional fee for online access while our budgets are
shrinking, this rate hike is excessive and could not come at a worse
time.  We are a captive audience for this title, and I wonder if the
publisher is trying to steer readers away from print.  If there is
anyone lurking from Nature Publishing Group, perhaps he/she could
comment on this.
