Results re pricing for Annals of the Association of American Geographers Skwor, Jeanette 28 Mar 2008 15:29 UTC

***Maybe Peter nails it.  Or maybe one hand doesn't know what the other is doing.  Or maybe someone is being less than honest.

***I don't know, but from the emails I've gotten offlist, I can tell you if you are paying more than $918 and you're in the United States, you are paying too much.

***Thanks so much for sharing; Serialsters rock!

Jeanette, off to draw up a battle plan

Those are the prices which EBSCO quotes for the title ....though the
$918 is for North America and the $1395 is for All Except North America.
Perhaps the T&F people don't know that Wisconsin is in North America????

I went to the T & F website and saw pricing that included "918 USD" and "1395 USD ROW".  I called because I didn't understand the lingo - USD of course is US Dollars, and was told that USD ROW is US Dollars, Rest Of World, and that that is the price we would need to pay.  We paid $726 for it to Blackwell for 2007.
