Sensitivity is the fulfillment factor

2012 article downloads from 760 titles: 22,883

2012 article downloads for the 45, ISI-ranked, top-30 titles: 8,138

Balance of articles downloaded from the remaining  651 Wiley titles: 14,700

Multipy by .67 fulfillment factor: 9,849

Obtaining 5 free article per title (base on 478 titles >5 downloads): 2,395 articles, free interlibrary loan

Balance needed to purchase via ILL channels: 7,454

Cost @ $35 per article: $260,890



Wiley Journal Bundle

  • Inventory: 760 Journal Titles

  • Use in 2012:  22,883 downloads

  • Wiley bundle price:  $190,000

  • The list price for the combined titles, a la carte, is $1,900,000

Wiley Options


  • Start with a bundle of 760 subscriptions, a bundle cost of $190,000, and 22,883 article downloads last year

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

    • There are 45 ISI-ranked (top 30) journal titles in the Wiley Bundle

    • The list price for these 45 subscriptions is $194,390
  • Scenarios for top-ranked, program-focused subscriptions with interlibrary loan backup:
    • If we subscribe to the 29 top-ranked journals where the subscription cost is less than a 67% interlibrary loan fulfillment rate, based on last three years' use (or those with exceptionally high use) those subscriptions would cost $152,000

    • Obtaining the articles in the 16 remaining top-ranked journals via interlibrary loan would cost $4,000

    • Selective subscription + interlibrary loan access to the 45, ISI-ranked, top journals would cost $156,000

    • This only includes the top-ranked (45) journal titles.  Obtaining two-thirds of the remaining downloads from the other 715 titles would cost $260,890.  Access to the Wiley  journal articles would total $416,890.

    • Because the bundle price for 760 subscriptions is $190,000, and the subscription to the top 45 journals supplemented by interlibrary loan would cost $416,890, we recommend subscribing to the Wiley bundle
