Premium Collection

The Premium Collection is designed for institutions acquiring comprehensively in the humanities and social sciences. This collection offers internationally respected scholarly journals that support the collection development and research needs of major research institutions. The Premium Collection will grow annually and the corresponding annual price will be a reflection of the number and nature of new titles added. All new titles added each year to MUSE become part of the Premium Collection, making it the most comprehensive collection offered by MUSE.
