"Well formatted; clear print and a responsive layout perfect for increasing text size or use on a mobile device. A table of contents appears on the left side of the navigation and moves with the user as they scroll through the contents. This provides easy access to other chapters as well as any supplementary materials associated with the title."

Purchasing Options

Subscription and perpetual access pricing is available for InfoSci®-Databases. Annual subscriptions to InfoSci®-Databases for colleges and universities are based on the institution's "Relevant FTE" - meaning the number of likely users at the institution, as reported by the customer, of content in the covered subject area(s). Flexible pricing allows this database to be an excellent addition to your library, regardless of the size of your institution. Please visit our purchasing page to subscribe to a database, request a free quote, or start a free 30 day trial.

IGI Global's perpetual access pricing is a one-time fee that represents a fraction of the combined print value of the collection and allows an institution to purchase perpetual access to research added to the database from the year 2000 through the end of the current calendar year. Each subsequent year of releases can then be purchased for additional one-time fees. There are no access or hosting fees associated with IGI Global perpetual purchases.
