Commercial digest (1 message) Ercelawn, Ann 27 Apr 2009 14:40 UTC


SERIALST Commercial Digest pilot project: Since June 2008, the SERIALST
moderators have been experimenting with compiling and distributing a
Commercial Digest once a week, on Friday afternoons, with messages
containing informational content from commercial bodies (i.e.,
publishers, vendors, agents, etc.). The moderators review submitted
messages for informational content that may interest our subscribers. We

reserve the right to reject messages that are purely for advertising or
product/service solicitation, with little or no informational content
beyond the solicitation, as well as other content that are not within
the scope and purpose guidelines of SERIALST

If you have thoughts or feedback about the Commercial digest, or other
aspects of SERIALST, please let us hear from you. Contact information

SGM introduces new 2010 Pricing Model

advance of the renewals. We have summarised the details below with a

SGM introduces new 2010 Pricing Model

The Society for General Microbiology (SGM) is introducing a revised

pricing model for its journals in 2010. Under its new, tiered pricing

structure, prices will depend on a number of factors, including the size

and type of the organization. This model will include more flexible site

licences, which will entitle organizations to a level of access across

several sites within one or two cities through a single licence, rather

than requiring multiple subscriptions or multi-site access.

SGM has worked extensively with industry partners to assign tiers to

customers. The majority of SGM customers will fall into tiers 1 - 4 and

pay a set, tiered, price. For some of SGM's customers this will mean a

reduction in the price they pay. Very large customers, or those wanting

access in sites across three or more cities, will be allocated into tier

5, for which custom prices will be agreed.

In order to provide time for a review of tier allocations and budgets in

advance of 2010 renewals, SGM has contacted customers directly and is

working closely with subscription agents to ensure that customers

receive early notification of their tier allocation and renewal price

for 2010.

Further information about the new model can be found at
