Hybrid Purchase/Subscription model
Collections combine book, journal and encyclopaedic content
All collections include journal articles; some collections include complete runs of specific journals as well as selected articles from other journals
Subscribers to more than one collection are only charged once for any content that is replicated across collections to which they subscribe
Subscription prices are adjusted to reflect any current journal subscriptions already held by libraries or any prior eBook purchases
Monographs and major reference books are purchased outright
Textbooks are purchased with annual fee allowing for unlimited simultaneous access (premium option) and access to Interactive editions. Libraries may cancel the textbook "premium" option and revert to more restricted simultaneous access after three years and later elect for this to be reinstated
Core journals are supplied on an annual subscription basis with perpetual access for material published during the period that a subscription is active
Supplemental book chapters and journal articles are included in collection prices; customers have access as long as they maintain all core journal subscriptions in their collection/s
New publications, including journal articles and chapters from edited volumes are added immediately upon publication by their original source
Books and journals scheduled for the forthcoming year are included in the annual price for their scheduled publication year and, if delayed, the value is deducted from the renewal price of the subscription the following year or refunded
The collection prices are not available elsewhere

Discovery and Support

We are working with the most popular web-scale discovery services — Ex Libris Primo, EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), Proquest Summon and OCLC Worldcat Discovery — by supplying them with complete metadata and full text of our journals. We are also now doing this for our eBooks. With this information the services are able to fully index Equinox content making it more discoverable. Libraries using any one of these online services should find it easy to integrate Equinox electronic publications into their collections. We are also seeking to be included in GOBI services.

Some features to note:
All new titles available on publication
Counter-compliant usage stats
MARC records with direct link urls
IP or username/password authentication
Chapter and book level DOIs and abstracts
Long-term archiving via Portico or as arranged
Same prices as hardback print (except for textbooks)
