Journal of Immunology is basing its 2002 subscription price based on FTE's

The Journal of Immunology has announced that for 2002 the print and
electronic subscriptions are bundled and that the price is based on the
FTEs of an institution.

This is the first time that I have seen it required that to get the print
version of a journal it is necessary to (in effect) do a site license for
the electronic based on FTEs.

The Journal of Immunology introduces a new subscription program for 2002

The Journal of Immunology (The JI), official publication of the American
Association of Immunologists, is pleased to introduce a new subscription
program for 2002.  The new site license is based on institutional size and
allows proxy server delivery of content. Rates will vary depending on the
number of individuals affiliated with the institution (students, staff and
faculty comprised Full-Time Equivalents, or FTEs).

In 2002, institutional site licensees may deliver The JI to faculty,
staff, and students covered by the site license. The JI may be delivered
via individual IP addresses--or via proxy server, which was not previously
available. Each site license includes a print subscription to The JI along
with access to institutional usage statistics.

Because of the changes in policy, all existing licensing agreements must
be renewed in 2002. Please visit
http://www.jimmunol.org/subscriptions/terms_inst.shtml for the new terms
and conditions. Continuing online users must print and sign a copy of the
license and return it to the address listed above. Failure to return a
signed license agreement may result in loss of access.  First-time
registrants need only click the "I agree" button.

Since its inception, The JI has been a cost-effective journal with the
least expensive per page cost of major leading scientific research
journals. Our new subscription program continues this tradition while
introducing a pricing structure that more accurately reflects journal
usage. Single site rates for 2002 follow.

$550 for US Institutions with fewer than 1,000 FTEs. 
$575 for US Institutions with FTEs between 1,000 and 2,999. 
$625 for US Institutions with FTEs between 3,000 and 11,999. 
$700 for US Institutions with FTEs between 12,000 and 25,000. 
$800 for US Institutions with FTEs exceeding 25,000. 

Institutions outside the US must add $160 for surface delivery and an
additional $305 for expedited delivery of the print edition.

Additionally, academic institutions or corporations with more than one
site also will have the opportunity to purchase multi-site licenses to
provide access to a greater number of users. Please contact The JI office
for multi-site pricing.

This news release is being sent to subscription agents and The JI's
institutional subscribers. Details of this new program, along with the
downloadable Site License Agreement, can be found on The JI's Web site
(http://www.jimmunol.org/subscriptions/terms_inst.shtml). Information also
will be included on the 2002 rate sheet being mailed to The JI's
subscription agents and institutions. Institutions that use agents, should
contact them for more information or to subscribe.
