ALPSP Learned Journals Collection
This collection is an initiative whereby smaller ALPSP member publishers work together, through Swets, to sell a combined package of their journals to consortia and other large customers. Other publishers participating in the collection include Edinburgh University Press, Liverpool University Press, Brill and Walter de Gruyter, which allows our journals to be sold in subject packages with over 80 other journals. Other benefits include:
  • Cross publisher package: A unique and straightforward way to acquire a wealth of content from multiple publishers;
  • Value for money: An affordable and flexible solution offering key, high quality electronic content;
  • Simplicity: A single order, license, pricing model, invoice and point of contact;
  • Instant Access: Access activated within 24 hours;
  • Multi-year license agreements: Fixed annual price increase;
  • An initiative of smaller- and medium-sized publishers;
  • Special consortia arrangements available.
