NEW journals packages for 2012

To meet the needs of academic and corporate institutions, and consortia members, RSM Press offers a range of themed journal packages. In addition we have introduced two new packages for 2012 – the RSM Full Collection and the Customised Collection, which allows institutions to tailor their journals' libraries to suit the specific needs of their users.

RSM Press publishes 26 journals including two Open-Access journals. All RSM Journals are available online on the newly released RSM H2O platform hosted by HighWire as well as in the print edition.

The online version of a journal gives librarians and readers quick and easy access to a whole range of research articles.

For journals subscribed to it offers instant access to full-text, where available, with links to references and cited articles.

RSM Press offers two types of institutional subscription - Print (with free electronic access) and Online-only.

Online-only subscriptions include:

  • Access to PDF and HTML full-text articles from the current volume and previous five years
  • Perpetual archival rights to paid-for content where RSM has the rights to deliver this
  • Access to Online First articles where available – i.e. articles published ahead of print
  • IP and/or remote user access authentication
  • 10% discount on the print subscription price

Print subscriptions include:

  • All the features of the online-only subscription with the added advantage of the printed version

RSM Press also offers a Deep Discount on Print (DDP) to any institution taking an online-only subscription. Print copies of any non-subscribed title covered by the licence are available at 30% of the standard institutional print price to any institutions.

Institutions are required to accept our Terms and Conditions outlined in our 'Site License Agreement for Access to RSM Journals'.
