Services IGI Global is Offering In Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
As Part of Our Efforts to Assist Librarian Customers with More Easily and Affordably Obtaining Titles in Electronic Format, IGI Global is Now Offering a 50% Discount on All E-Books and E-Journals Ordered Through IGI Global’s Online Bookstore*

To support libraries in providing their patrons with access to critical online resources, IGI Global is offering a 50% discount on perpetual access to e-books and e-journals. This opportunity is ideal to convert previously acquired print holdings to electronic format at a 50% discount and to obtain other needed titles in e-format. This enables institutions to seamlessly transition into online-only environments and aids in the continuation of knowledge and discovery during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As accessibility to online resources is of critical importance during the current pandemic protocol, IGI Global will assist in converting your previously acquired IGI Global print holdings to electronic formats directly through our InfoSci® platform, ProQuest's EBook Central®, or EBSCOhost. To take advantage of this offer, send us a list of IGI Global publications you would like to convert, and we'll provide a 50% discount off the electronic version list price and promptly facilitate the set-up and access.

You may also contact your preferred platform representative to request print to electronic conversions.

*The 50% discount is offered for all e-books and e-journals purchased on IGI Global’s Online Bookstore. E-books and e-journals are hosted on IGI Global’s InfoSci® platform and available for PDF and/or ePUB download on a perpetual or subscription basis. This discount cannot be combined with any other discount or promotional offer.
Offer expires June 30, 2020.

IGI Global’s Open Access (OA) Fee Waiver (Read and Publish) Initiative For any library that invests in IGI Global's InfoSci-Books and/or InfoSci-Journals databases, IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the OA article processing charges (APCs) for their students, faculty, and staff at that institution when their work is submitted and accepted under OA into an IGI Global journal.*

For more information, watch IGI Global's 2018 Charleston Conference Neapolitan Panel Session,
"Sustainable Open Access Approaches: Benefits for Researchers, Librarians, and Publishers"

*The fund will be offered on an annual basis and expire at the end of the subscription period. The fund would renew as the subscription is renewed for each year thereafter. The open access fees will be waived after the student, faculty, or staff’s paper has been vetted/accepted into an IGI Global journal as requested by the author(s) of the paper. Libraries in developing countries will have the match on their investment doubled.
