I'm not suggesting there isn't interest beyond this group (I know there is; our Pre-Pub numbers demonstrate that). But I was a little surprised to learn that there's a relatively small group of folks who are really engaged in the journals conversation.

I don't think we should conclude too much from this, but I thought it was an interesting observation worth passing along.

I stop by and check this thread regularly without leaving any comment.  Particularly because I don't think it is useful on these forums to bang on and on about the same thing... once you say something, it's sometimes good to let it lie a bit.  Also, my requirement for journals tapered off a few years after we felt the sting of the parting of ways with Galaxie.  Since then I have not invested much in journals, but that is changing again... and I am signed up for a pre-pub right now.

So I am not sure what it takes to register interest in this topic, but for a premier Bible software program I have to believe that there are others like me that want and need a robust journal subscription.  Actually, if there had been an annual subscription to get journals automatically updated, I probably would have kept receiving them all this time.  Personally, this is of more interest to me than some of the other things that FL has rolled out in the last few years... but now I am starting to repeat what I wrote back in the beginning of this very long thread.  Sorry! Stick out tongue

Phil Gons (Faithlife):
the right set of journals

I have a bias, but the Galaxie theological library was not a bad little library considering.  The current master collection has a lot of stuff that is so broad I don't know if I could ever use it.  That being said, I have been impressed how Logos has grown over the years to leverage all this data and can present it in a productive way to allow one to sift out the nuggets.  One suggestion would be for the 'Journals' section to have subsections like Ancient Literature section to get journals listed according to category.  That would require more tagging I would guess, which is probably not what you want to hear!

I wonder if something like a "21st Century Journals" bundle would be an easier sell... buyers get exclusively (relatively) recent journal articles without forking out anywhere near as much money as MJB requires. Then, if they want back issues...

If we never see 4.1 bundles clear pre-pub is this the end of journals?

They were able to sneak a few into some of the Logos 8 BPs. We may have to wait until L9 to see a few more. A Socialist themed BP would let the many pay for the wants of the few. It would have to be disguised to the many.
