Project MUSE is pleased to announce that seventeen new journals
and seven new publishers are confirmed to date for inclusion in
its online collections of humanities and social science journals

University Press, which is new to Project MUSE. MUSE is delighted
to be adding Texas Tech along with the other new participating
publishers to its list of over 60 not-for-profit presses whose
journals have been selected for the collections. Project MUSE
2007 pricing is also now available, and may be accessed from the
2007 Subscription Information overview at

MUSE continues to offer a tiered, affordable pricing model for
its six collections, allowing libraries of all sizes and missions
the opportunity to access the collection that best fits each
institution's needs and budget. The list price for the 2007 MUSE
Premium Collection is $27,500, representing a discount of more
than 15% off the actual value of print subscriptions to the
nearly 350 titles included. MUSE collections offer superior value
with complete full-text content, no embargoes, high quality
peer-reviewed titles, archival rights to all subscribed material,

New Titles Added to Collections

The Premium Collection will continue to offer libraries the most
comprehensive collection of online arts and humanities content.
All seventeen new journals from new and participating publishers
will be included in the Premium Collection. (Please see the
complete list of new titles at the end of this announcement.)
Selected new titles will also be added to three of MUSE's
existing collections: Standard Collection, Arts and Humanities
Collection, and Social Sciences Collection.  In addition,
selected current titles will be added to the Basic Research
Collection, the Basic Undergraduate Collection, and the Social
Sciences Collection.

Comparative Drama, James Joyce Quarterly, and Tulsa Studies in
Women's Literature will be joining the MUSE Standard Collection.
Journals are chosen for the MUSE Basic Research and Basic
Undergraduate collections based on a number of selective
criteria, and current MUSE titles are re-evaluated annually using
these guidelines. Journals now meeting the selection criteria may
'graduate' into the applicable Basic collection(s). In 2007, MUSE
will enhance the Basic Research Collection with several current
titles: Asian Perspectives, Journal of Narrative Theory,
Mediterranean Quarterly, and Southeastern Geographer.  The Basic
Undergraduate Collection will gain American Annals of the Deaf,
Asian Perspectives, Journal of Folklore Research, Leonardo Music
Journal, Nineteenth Century French Studies and positions: east
asia cultures critique. Titles new to MUSE in 2007 will also be
added to the Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences collections as
appropriate based upon their subject matter. Please see the MUSE
web site for complete 2007 title lists for all six collections.
