Liverpool University Press Pricing 2011

Liverpool University Press is pleased to announce a brand new, 
more flexible pricing policy for journals in 2011, including the 
addition of an 'Online Only' subscription option.

Also on offer will be a 'Premium Backfile' subscription option 
for our most established journals, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, 
International Development Planning Review, and Town Planning 
Review, giving current subscribers full access to the complete 
electronic archive of these journals. This premium package will 
allow subscribers to access 100 years of TPR, including some 
defining articles in planning history, 30 years of IDPR and the 
entire backfile of BHS from 1923 to the present day.

The 'Print and Online' subscription option will still be 
available, for those libraries who wish to retain a print copy of 
our journals. For UK institutional 'Print and Online' 
subscriptions, VAT will be levied on 40% of the subscription 
price (for example, if the VAT rate is 17.5% then librarians 
should add VAT at 7% (17.5% of 40%) to the total 'Print and 
Online' rate).

This change in policy has come about in response to librarian 
requests, and LUP's recent rapid expansion, now publishing 14 
scholarly journals and around 45 new books per annum across the 
arts and humanities.

In 2010 LUP became the latest publisher to launch journals 
electronic content management and hosting services via the 
MetaPress platform, offering much improved functionality 
including Table of Contents (TOC) alerting, RSS feeds, pay per 
view single article purchase option, COUNTER usage statistics and 
CrossRef membership.

LUP is a member of both Portico and LOCKSS, not for profit 
services committed to the preservation of digital publications, 
including e-journals, e-books, and digitised history collections. 
For standard 'Online Only'/'Print and Online' subscriptions, 
post-cancellation access (i.e. retained online access to the 
subscribed years) will be provided on the LUP MetaPress platform 
and/or through Portico/LOCKSS.

We are delighted to be able to further enhance the user 
experience for libraries and individual users. Full pricing 
details for 2011 will be available on the Liverpool University 
Press Metapress site: http://liverpool.metapress.com/
