?We stopped getting Nature in print after 2013.  We couldn't afford to support both formats, and the online is very heavily used.  We also bought the online archive as a one time purchase.  No one has asked about print issues.

Subject: [SERIALST] Nature print format increase

So, anyone notice that the print version of Nature is going up 14% for 2017? I don't see any tiered pricing options for the print, meaning our small liberal arts college is paying quite a lot. And of course you must have Nature online, which is a completely separate cost, a considerably higher cost, that tends to increase 7% a year.

The personal subscription to Nature is $200 per year. We have only one known regular user of print Nature, who could just as well read it at home. We have Nature from v.1 1869 to current (with one missing volume in the run) but all our bound periodicals are in remote storage, so what's the point of collecting more print issues. Something to ponder.
