Wiley-Blackwell is proud to introduce College Collections, specially priced journal packages for U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities that do not offer doctoral programs. College Collections are designed to give non-research intensive colleges and universities an affordable option to provide their faculty and students with the most recent peer-reviewed scholarly content.
“College Collections will provide both faculty and students the highest quality scholarly research available while taking into account the budgetary realities of smaller institutions. We are very pleased to offer this option to institutions that will now be able to affordably have access to the content previously only available to larger research institutions.” said Christopher McKenzie, Vice President and Director of Institutional Sales, Americas and EMEA.
The Collections are competitively priced for a full-year of access with standard prices for both two and four-year institutions that qualify. Qualifying institutions will be required to maintain their current Wiley-Blackwell subscriptions and Wiley-Blackwell reserves the right to limit this offer to institutions with less than $10,000 in current journal subscriptions or if the institution is research-focused, as determined by Wiley-Blackwell. Certain other restrictions and additional eligibility may apply.
