Once the e-mail message containing the document arrives, [members] ... may print it or forward it electronically to ...

PEAK (Pricing Electronic Access to Knowledge)

Contact

peakgroup@umich.edu

Description

"PEAK will explore both bundling and nonlinear pricing opportunities afforded by electronic access. The key research objective is generalizability to other user populations and other scholarly materials."

"The University of Michigan (UM) and Elsevier Science are working together on PEAK. PEAK permits UM to create and manage a host service for all 1110 journals published by Elsevier, including the North Holland, Butterworth, and Pergamon imprints. This experiment extends the cooperative relationship between the two organizations which began with UM's participation in The University LIcensing Project (TULIP). The PEAK experiment will last a minimum of 18 months during which time UM will offer host services to other institutions and organizations under different pricing options. Initial services ... [began] in summer 1997."

"After extensive discussion with library collection experts and potential participants, the [PEAK]project team [has] decided to offer three bundles. The first two options mirror the best-known traditional options; the third choice is more novel.

"The goal of the PEAK field experiment is to generate rich empirical evidence on user behavior and on provider experience with various bundling and pricing options. PEAK will extend the existing theoretical work in these areas to more realistic situations. The space for electronic access bundling and pricing structures is immense, however, and many field trials will be required to explore even a limited set of important alternatives. Continued collaborative efforts between libraries and publishers will build on the knowledge gained through this experiment."

"PEAK is a research and content delivery project at the Univesity of Michigan."

Just-In-Time (sm): Electronic Article Delivery Services is a clearinghouse of projects, research, products and services which are investigating or provide desktop access on an 'As Needed' basis to individual journal, magazine, newspaper, or other serial publication article, chapter, or paper for which an individual or institution does not have a formal subscription. This clearinghouse also includes bibliographic databases that can be searched for a fixed transactional fee. Entries have been organized in categories that characterize the scope of service and within each arranged alphabetically by the name of the service, project, or publisher.

We welcome nomination of other efforts that provide Pay-Per-View or other transactional access to full-text materials, particularly those that provide this retrieval through abstracting and indexing services.

Just-in-Time (sm) is compiled and maintained by Gerry McKiernan, Science and Technology Librarian, Science and Technology Department, and Curator, CyberStacks(sm) and several other Net Projects at Iowa State University, Ames, IA 50011
