NEWS 24/4/09: The
Society for General Microbiology (SGM) is introducing a revised pricing
model for its journals in 2010. Under its new, tiered pricing structure,
prices will depend on a number of factors, including the size and type
of the organization. This model will include more flexible site licences,
which will entitle organizations to a level of access across several sites
within one or two cities through a single licence, rather than requiring
multiple subscriptions or multi-site access.

more cities, will be allocated into tier 5, for which custom prices will
In order to provide time
for a review of tier allocations and budgets in advance of 2010 renewals,
SGM has contacted customers directly and is working closely with subscription
agents to ensure that customers receive early notification of their tier
allocation and renewal price for 2010.

the new model can be found at www.sgmjournals.org/librarians
