  • Use in 2012: 12,500 article downloads

  • Bundle pricing: $32,500

  • Identify the journals in the Sage Bundle that are ISI Ranked (top 30) in the top 11 UML fields of study.

    • There are 40 ISI-ranked (top 30) journal titles in the Sage Bundle

    • The list price for these 40 subscriptions is $57,845

  • Scenarios for top-ranked, program-focused subscriptions with interlibrary loan backup:

    • If we subscribe to the 15 top-ranked journals where the subscription cost is less than a 67% interlibrary loan fulfillment rate, based on last three years' use, those subscriptions would cost $13,666

    • Obtaining the articles in the 25 remaining top-ranked journals via interlibrary loan would cost $8,308

    • Selective subscription + interlibrary loan access to the 40, ISI-ranked, top journals would cost $21,974

    • This only includes the top-ranked (40) journal titles. Obtaining two-thirds of the remaining downloads would cost $102,072.  Access to the Sage journal articles would total $124,046

    • We recommend subscribing to the Sage bundle, which costs $32,500
