From the vendor:
We continue to moderate our price increases to the lowest possible levels while still allowing for the growth of content on MUSE and necessary development and support of the platform to ensure we continue to meet industry standards and customer expectations. With over 600 high-quality scholarly journals now available on our platform, and the addition since 2012 of nearly 50,000 university and scholarly press books, MUSE operates with effectively the same staffing levels as we did five years ago, and continues to return the vast majority of our revenue (over 75%) to our participating not-for-profit publishers, allowing them to remain viable and independent. For 2018, MUSE’s Premium Collection will see a 5% increase, with the other five MUSE journal collection price increases at 3% or less.
A Look Ahead to 2018: New Content, New Interface
MUSE is pleased to announce twelve new journals confirmed to join our online collections for 2018, with a few more expected to be confirmed shortly. The new titles grow our holdings across several core MUSE subject areas, including religious studies, cultural studies, literature, education, library science, and music. A list of all new journals confirmed to date, along with other collection content updates, may be found at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/upcoming.html#new2018. MUSE also continues to expand our archival content holdings. Over 150 journals titles now offer complete runs, from the first volume and issue, on the MUSE platform. All archival content is immediately available to current subscribers to applicable titles at no additional charge. A full list of journals with complete runs in MUSE is at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/order/back_issues.html.
In July 2016 MUSE was awarded a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to develop MUSE Open, a distribution program for open access monographs in the humanities and social sciences. OA book content will be searchable, discoverable, and integrated on the MUSE platform with MUSE's journal and book collections. The deployment of MUSE Open will involve new design and technological infrastructure for the MUSE platform to ensure the best possible dissemination, discovery, accessibility, and utility of the OA works, as well as greatly enhancing the user experience for all content on MUSE. A mid-2018 release is expected for the redesigned site, with plans for a beta site to be available in early 2018 previewing the new look and functionality. The beta site will run in tandem with the current MUSE site while we collect additional user feedback and make refinements prior to launch. Please watch for further announcements and opportunities to learn more about the platform upgrade.
