AVS Offers Greater Flexibility to its Customers

AVS offers a series of pricing and product configurations designed to lower the subscription costs for smaller institutions, increase researcher access to its content and give greater pricing flexibility to institutional subscribers of all sizes. These changes included:

  • • Bundling Surface Science Spectra and Biointerphases with JVST A & JVST B at no extra charge,
  • • The creation of a backfile option that can be leased or purchased,
  • • Offering new, attractively priced “e-only” subscriptions, and
  • • The implementation of a 6 Tier pricing model that lowers the cost of subscription for smaller institutions.

The AVS Super Bundle

The JVST A&B bundle is even better with the addition of Surface Science Spectra and Biointerphases at no extra charge. Providing reference, comparison, and technical spectra representing a range of spectra including XPS, AES and SIMS, including downloadable digital data, Surface Science Spectra is a high-value addition to your existing subscription that will be heavily used for years to come. Biointerphases completes the bundled package by featuring all aspects of quantitative soft matter interfaces: chemistry, physics, engineering, theory and modeling.

AVS Archives

Expanding the AVS backfiles to include content published up to 1998 creates a richer Archives collection of seminal research that dates back to 1964. Archive Fact: More than 17,500 articles were published between 1983 and 1998 in the Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology A & B (JVST A & B). These articles have received over 330,000 citations since their publication. JVST A & B are primary research journals and have cited half-lives of over 10 years. The AVS Archives are available as a lease or one-time purchase option.

E-only Subscriptions

Following the evolution of journal pricing from print to electronic models, the AVS offers “electronic only” subscription option. While still offering a print option for those customers who still want it, these new AVS "electronic only" subscriptions offer lower price points, while reducing the costs associated with maintaining your print copy collection.

AVS 2017 Subscription Pricing

The six tier pricing structure lowers the cost of access for smaller and mid-size institutions, enabling more researchers around the world to have access to this valuable collection. Whether you’re a small academic institution or a large corporate R&D outfit, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. The new AVS pricing changes will bring you greater flexibility and affordability in providing your researchers with some of the world’s best materials-related research, while enabling the AVS to continue to fulfill its mission to foster the growth of science through a healthy, valuable and dynamic publishing program.
