Check out the EBSCO 2019 Serials Price Projection Report, which EBSCO produces to help customers with budgeting for the renewal season, and read about market dynamics that impact the scholarly information marketplace.
Each year, EBSCO strives to help customers plan by projecting publisher price increases for the upcoming year. We use recent information received from publishers, as well as historical price data, to calculate these projections. As of now, we expect the overall effective publisher price increases for academic and medical libraries for 2019 to be in the range of five to six percent.
EBSCO also looks at market trends and what’s driving library purchasing decisions. In this year’s report, we cover market dynamics such as library budgets, serial price inflation, economic climates, open access, publisher consolidation and more.
