    360 KB: Royal Society Collection Changes - July 2022

    Question: What is happening to the Royal Society collections in 360 KB?


    In response to numerous customer requests the Royal Society targets will be revamped in 360KB 

    The objective is to reflect Royal Society's complex sales model outlined at:

    but also offer customers a simple activation option.

    ROYAL_SOCIETY_PUBLISHING  will be renamed ROYAL_SOCIETY_PUBLISHING_PAID [RRY].  Note that the update will lead to a reduction in the number of portfolios. It is recommended that libraries that activate ROYAL_SOCIETY_PUBLISHING_PAID, also activate ROYAL_SOCIETY_PUBLICATIONS_FREE [ICLEN].  This configuration will provide access to both the paid and the free content with complete coverage details.

    Alternatively, subscribers have the option of activating ROYAL_SOCIETY_PACKAGE_S [V1E] which includes all paid and free Royal Society content.  This target is slated to be revised shortly. In its revised format, it will display a single continuous threshold for each title and will not differentiate between paid and free content.

    In addition, all customers are encouraged to activate ROYAL_SOCIETY_OPEN_ACCESS_JOURNALS [OP1hich provides access to the fully Open Access journals.
