Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), publisher of Radiology and RadioGraphics, has announced that it has implemented a new journal license and tiered pricing system for all 2009 subscribers. The move is in response to the changing needs of users and the growth in online publishing.
The new mission-based pricing system is customised to institution type and research level and creates an opportunity to better meet the needs of academic, hospital and corporate subscribers. Academic tiers are based on research level, as described by the institution's Carnegie classification. Hospital tier journal pricing is based on the number of beds and member hospitals, as provided by the American Hospital Association Guide. Corporate subscribers are analysed on a case-by-case basis and are required to sign an RSNA license, accommodating the need for global use, medical information, and marketing rights.
Subscribers of Radiology and RadioGraphics can visit the RSNA Librarian Gateway at rsna.org/RLGateway for more information on the new license and tiered pricing system for the journal. This new gateway also allows administrators to manage their account, view usage reports and change IP addresses. Each month, content within Radiology continues to gain widespread coverage in the public media.
