Project MUSE News: MUSE Partners with University of Hawai'i Press

Recently, The University of Hawai’i Press announced that it had selected Project MUSE to host, manage, and deliver all its journal content to their growing audience of librarians and readers. This exciting expansion of our long-time business relationship with UH Press is a first step for MUSE in providing additional customized services for our participating publishers, while making more content available on our platform. You can read the full text of the announcement here http://bit.ly/2n7rdBK. This enhanced partnership between MUSE and UH Press is a benefit to libraries, as more journal content from UH Press may be included in their collections and it offers the opportunity to acquire additional journals that may not be in their subscribed collection. Specifically: • Current Project MUSE journal collection subscribers will retain access to all University of Hawai’i Press journal titles that are included in the MUSE collection to which the library subscribes. UH Press journal title participation in MUSE Journal Collections is not changing as a result of the expanded hosting agreement. Twenty of the UH Press’ 22 scholarly titles are already available on MUSE as part of our MUSE Journal Collections. • Pacific Science, a UH Press title which previously participated in MUSE journal collections did not contribute new content from 2008 to 2016, has now resumed contributing current issues to the MUSE Premium Collection and Standard Collection. Further, all volumes and issues which were published from 2008 to 2016 have now been added to Project MUSE, and will be accessible to all Premium and Standard collection subscribers. Pacific Science now has continuous coverage on MUSE from Vol. 55, No. 1 (January 2001) to current. • Two additional UH Press journals, not previously available on Project MUSE, are now available for single title subscriptions on the MUSE platform. These titles, Journal of Daoist Studies and Trans-Humanities, will not be available in MUSE Journal Collections, but libraries may subscribe to them on an individual basis. For information on acquiring access to one or both of these titles, please see http://muse.jhu.edu/cgi-bin/single_title_subscription.cgi?year=2017, or for assistance contact jrnlcirc@press.jhu.edu. Further questions about Project MUSE and the University of Hawai’I Press may be directed to muse@press.jhu.edu. Project MUSE is expanding its program host additional journal content on the platform, outside of the journal collections; hosted journals may be offered under a subscription model or as open access. MUSE welcomes inquiries from journal publishers, including library-based publishers, regarding hosting on the MUSE platform.
