SPIE Digital Library Price Reduction Extends Through 2011
October 28, 2010

The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), among the first publishers last year to respond to economic challenges besetting the research library community by reducing subscription prices, is extending the reduction through 2011 by freezing prices at 2010 levels.

SPIE implemented a 10% rollback in pricing for institutional subscriptions to the SPIE Digital Library in 2010 in an effort to help librarians contain costs.

Through careful stewardship and with a stable subscription base, SPIE is able to maintain the price rollback program through 2011 while maintaining services, features, and content, noted SPIE CEO Eugene Arthurs.

The 2011 pricing freeze applies to current and new subscriptions to the full SPIE Digital Library as well as topical segment subscriptions. It does not apply to print editions of proceedings or journals, or to independent subscriptions to single SPIE journals.
