Join IGI Global at the 2019 UKSG 42nd Annual Conference to Learn About OA, Publishing Opportunities, and More.

IGI Global Continues to Disseminate Timely Research and Knowledge at the 2019 UKSG 42nd Annual Conference

By Anne Long on Apr 8, 2019
Reinforcing our mission to disseminate the most timely, peer-reviewed research and ensure quality content is easily available to the worldwide academic community, IGI Global will be exhibiting at booth #100 at the upcoming 2019 UKSG 42nd Annual Conference and Exhibition in Telford, UK, on April 8-10, 2019.

In addition to sharing IGI Global’s latest, emerging publications and research with the academic community, Mr. Nick Newcomer, Director of Marketing, and Ms. Caroline Campbell, Marketing Manager, will represent the international academic publisher at the conference, showcasing to librarians how IGI Global is meeting the call for Open Access (OA) publishing.

For years, IGI Global has been very mindful of the OA movement and the challenges libraries and researchers are both facing in research acquisition and OA publishing. Firmly believing that libraries should not have to stop their subscriptions in order to reallocate funds to support their faculty in publishing OA, we have launched an initiative that offers this “one package.”

Well in advance of Plan S, IGI Global provides libraries with the opportunity to support a sustainable OA movement by offering an additional source of article processing charges (APCs) through IGI Global's Open Access (OA) Fee Waiver (Offset Model) Initiative which:

    When any library invests in one of IGI Global's InfoSci-Databases, consisting of InfoSci-Books (4,500+ e-books), InfoSci-Journals (185+ e-journals) and/or smaller subject and discipline-focused publications, IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the OA APCs for their students, faculty, and staff at that institution when their work is submitted and accepted under OA into an IGI Global journal.**

IGI Global’s InfoSci-Books database is offered for an annual subscription (2000-2019) as low as US$ 8,580 US$ 6,435* (perpetual purchase for current copyright year (2019) offered as low as: US$ 17,500 US$ 13,125*), and InfoSci-Journals is offered for an annual subscription (2000-2019) as low as US$ 5,100 US$ 3,825* (perpetual purchase for current volume year (2019) offered as low as: US$ 5,000 US$ 3,750*), ensuring that institutions are able to take advantage of this initiative as well as provide their institution with resources that span across 350+ topics in 11 core subjects including business, computer science, education, engineering, social sciences, and more.

Through IGI Global’s simple and transparent pricing on these powerful research databases, libraries can easily acquire the highest quality, cutting-edge research for their patrons and have access to key features:

  • Free MARC Records
  • No Set-up/Maintenance Fees
  • COUNTER Compliant Reports
  • Full-text PDF and HTML Format
  • No DRM
  • Unlimited Simultaneous Users
  • No Embargo of Content (Research is available months in advance of the print release)
  • And More

Notable publications within this database include over 3,000+ titles that have been edited and contributed by researchers from Europe, including:

Additionally, with the ever-evolving challenge of decreasing costs while still acquiring innovative content for their collection, librarians can receive a 25% discount on all purchases (including single book and journal titles, as well as on the InfoSci-Databases) when they sign up for IGI Global’s free Library Account Program.

Due to this flexibility and affordability of our products and offerings, IGI Global collaborates with consortium worldwide to ensure that institutions can easily access this content. Working with leading domestic and international consortium such as the Carolina Consortium, CAUL Electronic Information Resources Consortium (CEIRC), Eduserv, The Federal Library and Information Network (FEDLINK), and many more, IGI Global offers multiple purchasing options including their flexible and transparent evidence-based acquisition (EBA) model for both single libraries and consortia, as well as single and group purchasing models.

For additional information regarding this model, please contact, and be sure to recommend IGI Global content to your consortia colleagues/leadership.

Unable to Attend This Conference?: For those who are unable to attend this conference, we would also be more than happy to schedule a conference call or online meeting to discuss these initiatives, as well as your libraries holdings, consortium opportunities, and more. Additionally, IGI Global will also be attending the 2019 Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Conference in Cleveland, OH at booth #310 on April 10-13, 2019..

We look forward to making more connections and engaging with the wider academic community at these and future events!
