Have I missed something or are journals still categorized under: promised and not delivered?  I went to the yearly subscription somewhere else and haven't kept up with it here.

Have seen no movement on journals or any updates I can remember- I did the same thing, the yearly subscription, will most likely keep it going.

Can you be a bit more specific about what journals? And who made the promise of updates?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Thanks Jack - the question, and the delay, now make sense.

The "no information" thing is the killer! If we'd hear it's 6 months or 3 years, then we could decide if Logos can supply academic journals in a manner in which research can be done . . . but, it's the "no information" thing . . . So, I finally surrendered and have gone to Galaxie for a Journals subscription. Still, I really wish I could integrate my Journals into Logos! Come on, Logos . . .

We've made a lot of progress licensing journals, and are working on the text conversion now. I believe we're 30-60 days away from having lot of new content available. (I'm asking another team member to comment if they know more on the status.)

Much thanks for your update! Looking forward to the details, and even more, getting Theological Journals inside Logos!

We'll have a bunch of journals going up on Pre-Pub in the next week or two. There were a couple of loose ends that we're just now getting tied up. We're really close. Sorry for the delay!

Journals are a great addition to our libraries—indispensable on many levels!

And while we are talking about journals, may I again make a push for Filología Neotestamentaria? If you are interested in matters pertaining to Greek, this journal is one to have in your library! Do not let the title mislead you, there are many, many articles in here that are in English (as well as French, German, Italian, etc.).

Also, at a price of $99 how can you go wrong? I recently subscribed to Currents in New Testament Studies and for just two volumes it cost the same as this whole set! It is normal to pay into the three digit range for no more than four volumes a year.

I look forward to having this in my library!

Whats normal, and what the customer base are used to are two separate things however. The Galaxie journals were a fantastic deal.

L2 lvl4, L3 Scholars, L4 Scholars, L5 Platinum,  L6 Collectors. L7 Baptist Portfolio. L8 Baptist Platinum.

The high price is normal because libraries are their customers, not usually individuals. Many have a price for individuals that is much cheaper or connected to a membership like SBL. I'm sorry Cliff but there are lots of other things I can spend $100 on that will be more useful.

I understand completely. I just did not want this set to go unnoticed by those who may find it useful for their studies.
