As an International Academic Publisher, IGI Global Reaffirmed Our Presence with Librarians and Researchers Worldwide at ER&L.

As an international academic publisher, IGI Global travels to conferences and events all over the world to reaffirm our presence with librarians and researchers worldwide. As such, IGI Global attended the 14th Annual Electronic Resources and Libraries (ER&L) Conference in Austin, Texas, from March 3-6, 2019. Mr. Nick Newcomer, Director of Marketing, represented IGI Global to showcase to librarians how IGI Global is meeting the call for Open Access (OA) publishing in response to Plan S.

“Regardless of the wintery cold weather we brought to Austin, TX from chilly Pennsylvania, ER&L was a highly productive event with informative sessions. I enjoyed the many conversations shared with influential leaders in the library community, specifically those surrounding IGI Global’s Open Access Fee Waiver (Offset Model) Initiative,” stated Nick Newcomer. “With this offset model we’re pushing the OA envelope by offering 100% APC waivers and helping to reshape how OA research is funded and disseminated among the masses.”

Mindful of budgetary constraints and demand for new research acquisition models by librarians, IGI Global created this offset model that maximizes libraries investment in content, and offers complete, simple, and transparent pricing on the IGI Global's InfoSci®-Databases including InfoSci-Books (4,500+ e-books) and InfoSci-Journals (185+ e-journals). Additionally, it provides institutions with an additional source of OA funding for their faculty patrons as:

    For any library that invests in IGI Global's InfoSci-Books 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.**

In addition to providing librarians with information on IGI Global’s affordable, direct access to the timeliest, high-quality research, Mr. Newcomer also analyzed library holdings to see if they were eligible for IGI Global’s 100% Credit Program.

This credit program takes into consideration a library’s past investment in IGI Global’s individual publications and gives them credit towards purchasing or subscribing to InfoSci-Books and/or InfoSci-Journals databases. In addition, IGI Global is taking it a step further by allowing institutions to process their payment in two or three installments, enabling librarians to strategically place the spending within their budgets.

Due to IGI Global’s flexibility and common sense pricing, we have been able to build a vast network of contacts and partnerships with consortia including the Carolina Consortium, Amigos, and more, and while at the conference were able to meet with leaders of these groups to continue our mission to disseminate quality research across the globe. IGI Global sees the benefit in group purchasing and we provide special offers to consortia with the focus of providing their members with the resources they need.

For those who were unable to stop by IGI Global’s table at the 2019 ER&L Conference in Austin, Texas, IGI Global will be exhibiting at the upcoming United Kingdom Serials Group (UKSG) Conference at booth #100, in Telford, UK, on April 8-10, 2019, and the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Conference at booth #310 in Cleveland, Ohio, on April 10-13, 2019.

Additionally, IGI Global will be exhibiting at the upcoming American Education Resources Association (AERA) Conference at booth #702 in Toronto, Canada on April 5-9, 2019, to network with researchers and keep abreast of the latest educational research.
