Clifford Kvidahl:

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! 

I've been in since 1/6/2012 but I've worried about how much is in English to make it worth the $99

A fair question. See here for their author index. It will give you an idea of how much is in English. It may not be a full list of authors, just the last few years or so.

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!

Do we have an update on when these will be going on Pre-Pub? I haven't seen them hit yet.

Also, any chance of Vol 16 from Galaxie hitting Pre-Pub?

Thanks!

For those who have never purchased any journals, does anyone have a sense of whether they should be purchased now before the price potential goes up?

I have purchased many resources in Logos that are well worth having. But of all the purchases I have ever made, my original purchase of the Galaxie journals were the smartest and wisest purchase.  They are worth more than their weight in gold.  I am extremely sad to see the yearly updates have disappeared.  If you do not have the journals, then in my opinion, your Logos investment is greatly handicapped.  All the complaints I have read about misspellings etc in the journals....have never bothered me at all.  If you do not have the journals, and you have a chance to receive them, then I would purchase them.

Sorry, there is no chance of that happening and here is what FaithLife/Logos says about that:

Phil Gons:
...future versions of Galaxie's TJL won't be available in Logos, that doesn't mean the journals included in Galaxie products won't be. We're now working directly with the journal owners and hope to offer everything in TJL—and much more. Journals are a big focus for us right now. Our plan is to still give you access to all the great journal content you've come to love from Galaxie. There's no need to move to another platform or for Galaxie to publish through Vyrso.

I concur! Hurry, Journals . . . they're part of every work in Logos!

That's what I was thinking. Thanks for the info!

I would get them and get them ASAP. My only regret is I didn't get them sooner. They are required for 98% of my seminary's assignments (papers, discussions, etc., usually only Book reviews and Greek/Hebrew assignments don't require them). While I can access the Galaxie subscription for free using my college's library, the ease of searching, citing, etc., just isn't as fluid as it is in Logos. I used them in a discussion post the other week, and I already got my money's worth out of my investment using them one time. Oh how I wish I could do over some of my previous assignments before I started really using them.

Robert, 

since the product page has the article titles, one can estimate this. Accross the board, English seems to be about half of the content, maybe a bit more (I checked the first eight years or so) with David Allan Black and Stanley E Porter contributing a lot.

So it is perhaps 2,400 pages for $99. For good quality material that is still worth it. Thanks NB.Mick.
