Pricing Policy and Conditions 2006

2006 Institutional Pricing Policy

Our pricing policy has not changed for 2006. Oxford University Press Journals will continue to offer the following subscription options for individual title purchase by institutional subscribers:

  • Standard Institutional Subscription - Print with Online Subscription* A Standard Institutional Subscription includes a combined print subscription with site-wide online access to the title.
  • Online-only Institutional Subscription* Site-wide online-only access is available at a 10% discount off the Standard Institutional Subscription rate.
  • Print-only Institutional Subscription Print-only subscriptions are available on request at a 5% discount off the Standard Institutional Subscription. This will entitle the customer to receive a print copy of each issue of the title for the calendar year.

*Online access for items 1 and 2 above include:

  • IP registered access across a single site (multi-sites may contact us to negotiate an extended license)
  • Access to full-text in HTML (where available) and PDF - current contents, plus online back issues from 1996 where available
  • Remote access allowed via secure proxy
  • Inter-library loan
  • Archival access to paid-for content - See the OUP Institutional Site Licence for full details.

A full institutional price list is now available in a printable format. We also offer options for the purchase of our current and archival (pre-1996) content by collection online, see Collection sales for further information

Exclusions to the 2006 Institutional Price Policy

Open Access

Nucleic Acids Research - Open Access in 2006 Nucleic Acids Research (NAR) will continue with a full ‘Open Access’ (OA) publishing model in 2006. The online edition will be completely free of charge and the journal will be funded by institutional memberships, print subscriptions and author charges. Customers will continue to require a subscription to receive NAR in print.

To support NAR’s Open Access model in 2006, institutional subscribers will have 2 options:

  • Institutional membership: - single site. NAR institutional membership secures substantially discounted publication charges for corresponding authors based at the member institution. A print subscription is not included in institutional membership. Multi-site memberships are also available.
  • Print subscription: Institutions will require a print subscription in order to receive print copies of NAR. A 2006 institutional print subscription will no longer include complimentary membership.

Both options are available via subscription agents and directly from Oxford Journals. A further communication detailing the renewal procedures for agents will follow. More information about the new model, and frequently asked questions can be found at our NAR help pages.

Titles without an online-only subscription

The online-only rates have been removed for the following three titles, as online-only subscriptions will continue to be unavailable for 2006 (although online will still be available as part of a print subscription). This is because, on some occasions, we will not be able to obtain perpetual licenses to display enough of the illustrations within articles to justify the independent existence of an online-only version. The online version will provide useful 24/7 access to the full text of the journals, but will exclude the majority of the illustrations which will only be found in the print version.

  • Journal of Design History
  • Journal of the History of Collections
  • Oxford Art Journal

Free Online Access

The following titles will be freely available online in 2006:

Evidence Based Complementary Medicine. This has been made possible by the generous support of Ishikawa Natural Medicinal Products Research Center (INMPRC)

JNCI Cancer Spectrum

JNCI Cancer Spectrum (ISSN 1475-4029) is an online resource, available since 2002, based around the field's most highly cited original research journal, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The pricing structure for online access by institutions is based on FTE (Full Time Equivalents) and the size of the institution. Please see Cancer Spectrum for further details, or Email us at Customer Services.

Online Archive

Oxford Journals is scanning older back issues of their journals so that they can be made available electronically. The issues are being compiled into subject-based archives (electronic backfiles) which are available for outright purchase or subscription. The archives contain the content of each journal from Volume 1, Issue 1 up until the end of 1995.

A complete archive includes all journals in the subject-based archives (with no duplication of content). This will be available from January 2006. Purchase of the complete archive represents a saving of over 15% on the total purchase price of the individual archives. Further information can be found at our archive pages.

Access to Oxford Journals

Online Librarians are required to set up their own account for institutional access to Oxford Journals online; details on how to do this are available in our section For Librarians.

Our content is also accessible from a selection of gateways including SwetsWise, EBSCOhost Electronic Journals, OCLC Electronic Collections Online, Ingenta, Minerva etc. Please ask your subscription agent for further details or contact Oxford Journals Customer Services.

Publishing Ahead of Print

For Oxford Journals that have full-text articles online, in all cases the online issues are published before or at the same time as the print. However, there are several titles that offer 'Publish Ahead of Print' or 'Continuous Publication' services, which result in journal articles appearing online several weeks ahead of print. Details of such services are available at the relevant Oxford Journal home pages.
