InfoSci®-Disciplines is IGI Global’s latest collection of progressive databases. This product line allows institutions to choose from four discipline-focused databases, each focusing on specialized topics in over 200 studies, including business and management information science and technology, computer science and information technology, educational science and technology, engineering science and technology, environmental science and technology, government science and technology, library information science and technology, media and communication science and technology, medical, healthcare, and life science and technology, security and forensic science and technology, and social sciences and online behavior.

Purchasing Options

Subscription and perpetual access pricing is available for InfoSci®-Disciplines. Annual subscriptions to InfoSci®-Disciplines 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.
