Excluding TAFE students from FTE counts.
From 9 August 2005:  I am happy to charge TAFE students at 50% from now on.  Susanna Lob.
Previously:  If the institutions can guarantee that the TAFE students will be unable to take advantage of the service, that's fine.  ...It is our standard policy to base the cost of a licence on the total number of students rather than on a subset.  And we agreed in CAUL's case that we would base costs on the EFTSU figures available on your website.  If we were to compromise in this case, it would be unfair on our other HE subscribers around the world, the vast majority of which have a significant proportion of non-degree level students. Also, .... Oxford Reference Online will be suitable for TAFE students as there has been a tremendous uptake from further education colleges in the UK which offer similar vocational courses. .... There is the concurrent user option but, for multi-site institutions, this is very unlikely to prove cost-effective.

Changes to the Journals Listing in 2010 (7/7/09)
Oxford Journals - Institutional Price List 2010 (7/7/09)
Oxford Open Pricing - "In keeping with our pricing policy, for 2009 we have again made adjustments to online-only subscription prices for journals that offer the optional Oxford Open model. These changes reflect the amount of open access versus non-open access content published within each journal during 2007, and have resulted in some Oxford Open journals experiencing a price reduction to the online-only subscription compared to 2008."

Content:  .... 12 multi-volume reference works will be available for purchase. .... 5 out of the 6 titles included in the Western Civilization Collection of Oxford Reference Online are available as part of the Digital Reference Shelf.  There are no immediate plans to update the content of DRS titles which is why they are available for purchase.  There may be new editions at some stage in the future, and I'm sure we will offer a discounted rate to those who have purchased the previous e-edition.  Those who subscribe via the Western Civilization cluster of Oxford Reference Online will get the new editions as part of the subscription as is the case with ORO already.

For 2010 pricing see Oxford Law Resources (2/9/09)
2008 pricing for CAUL (27/8/07)
Pricing (12/10/06)
Access will be for an entire institution, as with our other products, but the pricing is based on the FTE of the law school only rather than the FTE of the whole institution.  Prices are:
USD $2,090 for an academic institution with a law school FTE of 299 or less
USD $2,490 for an academic institution with a law school FTE of 300-749
USD $2,990 for an academic institution with a law school FTE of 750 or more
It is worth noting at this stage that increases in the region of 10% will be applied for each of the next two years.  Because so much content will be added in the fortnightly updates, the value of the resource will increase at an above-average rate, and we need the pricing to reflect this.
For non-academic, non-commercial institutions, the price is a flat USD $1,995, with a projected 12.5% increase each year for three years.
For firms, chambers and other commerical customers (which I think doesn't apply to CAUL?), the price is a flat USD $2,995, with a projected 12.5% increase each year for three years.
