Duke University Press full price list for 2005 (16/7/04)

NEWS (20/8/04):  Due to ongoing major changes in our publishing program, Duke University Press will no longer include current content from eighteen of its journals in the Project Muse package, but will make these journals available instead through an electronic package of its own. Nine Duke University Press titles will remain on Project Muse, as will archival issues of journals previously available on Project Muse. The journals that will not have current content in the 2005 Project Muse package include
American Literature
American Speech
boundary 2
Camera Obscura
differences: A Journal of Feminist Cultural Studies
French Historical Studies
Hispanic American Historical Review
History of Political Economy
Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law
Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies
MLQ: Modern Language Quarterly
Poetics Today
Public Culture
Radical History Review
Social Text
South Atlantic Quarterly

To provide continuous access to these eighteen journals, Duke University Press is offering an e-package of journals. Other titles in the Duke electronic-only package include American Literary Scholarship, Common Knowledge, Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East, Eighteenth-Century Life, GLQ: A Journal of Lesbian and Gay Studies, Labor: Studies in Working-Class History of the Americas (new in 2004), Mediterranean Quarterly, Pedagogy, positions: east asia cultures critique, and Social Science History.

We will offer the Duke electronic-only journal package at 16% of the price paid for the 2004 full package of Project Muse (we will need to see proof of the price paid in 2004). This price is based on the portion of the package that could be attributed to Duke University Press content, calculated by such measures as number of pages, usage statistics, and share of the total package price. We are happy to work with consortia to arrange access to Duke journals.

To address archival concerns, Duke University Press will be launching a comprehensive electronic package in 2006.

Duke University Press is pleased to announce that COUNTER II-compliant usage statistics are now available to consortial subscribers.

In regards to the discount that CAUL has been receiving on DMJ, we will be able to honor the 10% discount for this year, but since CAUL is the only consortia to take advantage of this offer, we are not sure of the future of this discount. No decisions are final, but I wanted to make you aware of the possibility as soon as possible.

2004 Pricing for DMJ.
The pricing for DMJ e-only is USD 1,147 in 2004.  [Expressions of interest to the CAUL Office by 22 September, 2003]

Last summer Duke University Press created and made available free to print subscribers a digital version of Duke Mathematical Journal (DMJ) ( We would now like to make this digital version more widely available by offering it to institutions that do not subscribe to the print version.  We have therefore developed a plan to offer it to library consortia on a discounted basis. We would appreciate your feedback on the model we have put together. We want to make sure this plan will work for you, and we would value your input, especially since we see this model as a potential prototype for Project Euclid, a joint project with Cornell University Library to put mathematical journals online.

We understand that consortia generally acquire bundles of journals to market to their constituents, but we believe that the prestige of Duke Mathematical  Journal-and the massive discounts we are offering to consortia (up to 62% off print subscription)-will make it attractive to institutions that might not otherwise have access to it.

1. Duke Mathematical  Journal
2. Pricing Model
We propose an access model similar to that of Project MUSE; discounts on subscriptions to the digital version of Duke Mathematical Journal would depend on the number of subscribing institutions (and would be negotiable for small institutions). The base price for a print plus digital subscription is $1390; the base price for the digital version only is $1050. We propose the following discounts for consortial subscribers:

Number of subscribing institutions   % discount      Price
1-4                     0       $1050
5-19                    10      $945
20-39                   20      $840
40-59                   30      $735
60-99                   40      $630
100+                    50      $525

3. Bonus Volumes
Institutions that subscribe this year to the digital version of Duke Mathematical Journal will have access through the end of 2002, or two years for the price of one. At that point, we will need to re-assess the pricing structure because the journal will be housed at Project Euclid.

4. Web Site
Please, if you have a moment, check out the DMJ web site. Samples of past volumes are viewable by nonsubscribers, as is the site license. (Access to 2001 volumes is limited to subscribers who have returned the site license.)

Beginning with Volume 109, DMJ will feature a design (in pdf format) optimized for computer screen viewing, and each article will have bookmarks linked to article sections. All cross references  (to sections, equations, theorems, and citations) will be hyperlinks for quick navigation around the document. Further, the reference list at the end of each article will have links to the American Mathematical Society's MathSciNet database for each item for which there is a corresponding record. The full text for many of these citations will available with one click from the AMS page. In addition, each reference will list the pages where that reference is cited in the paper.

Because many of these features use either color or required a resizing of "the page", the screen version is not entirely suitable for printing. A separate version for printing locally will also be available.
