IGI Global new unprecedented InfoSci-Database pricing

(2 April 2018) Reinforcing its commitment to the complete worldwide dissemination of innovative research, IGI Global, a leading academic publisher, is offering unprecedented pricing for its award-winning InfoSci-Databases including InfoSci-Journals and InfoSci-Books. This new pricing structure is designed to ensure that institutions worldwide have the ability to acquire the latest innovative research at affordable rates.


IGI Global’s InfoSci-Journals Database is a collection of 175+ journals containing thousands of peer-reviewed articles. The annual subscription price for new customers is offered for as low as US$ 4,950. These journals are highly-cited and have been accepted into prestigious indices such as Web of Science, Scopus, Ei Compendex, and PsycINFO. Authored by over 100,000 industry-leading researchers this collection spans 11 core subject areas including business, computer science, education, engineering, and social sciences and humanities.

“Recently, the decision was made to drastically decrease the annual subscription of InfoSci®-Journals to make all of the knowledge accessible to the masses including Asia,” explained Dr. Mehdi Khosrow-Pour, President and CEO of IGI Global. “Over the past 30 years, IGI Global’s firm commitment to both the academic and research communities has produced this authoritative collection.”


In addition to the price reduction of InfoSci-Journals, IGI Global’s InfoSci-Books database is being offered for only US$ 20,850 on a one-time perpetual purchase for the 2018 copyright year or for an annual subscription price as low as US$ 4,950.

This database contains over 3,900 premier authoritative edited and authored reference books, encyclopedias, multi-volume publications, case studies, and proceedings, containing 86,000 chapters with over one million reference citations. When purchasing these titles as a part of the database, the average cost per book drops to US$ 11, a significant decrease from the average list price of each book, which is US$ 275.

All titles within this database are peer-reviewed and highly indexed in prestigious indices such as Web of Science, Scopus, PsycINFO, and ERIC, providing the academic community with research they know they can utilize and trust.

“IGI Global looks forward to bringing this new pricing to institutions throughout Asia,” said Nick Newcomer, Director of Marketing, “Through working with our partners and the powerful network of contributors, we will ensure that the most emerging research is created and disseminated.”
