Mark--Is this a rhetorical question? lol. It's about associations
relying on their journals as a constant and increasing revenue stream.
The practice of not having association journals as part of all
encompassing journal package deals is not new. Elsevier &
Blackwell/Wiley have done it for a number of years. You have to buy the
association journals separately on top of the package deal price.
