What's happening with the Master Journal Bundle 2.1? I thought we were moving to quarterly updates?

I recall seeing that as the stated goal as well. It's been 5 months since the first bundle dropped, so I'm guessing (as with many things in life) it's taking longer than anticipated to produce.

Perhaps once it really gets going and the newest bundle consists mostly of new editions of the journal collections that have already been produced, then the process will go more quickly. That's just pure speculation. I have no inside information. Stick out tongue

Personally, once or twice a year would be fine with me.

I was wondering about this too.

I too would be happy with that sort of timing.

This is a really good question and one that, with all the recent changes, has been on our mind as well.

We plan to continue acquiring new volumes and producing quarterly updates to the MJB and its associated bundles. Usually, they won't be as large as the jump from MJB 1 to MJB 2.1. Additionally, some sub-bundles may not always receive a quarterly update because we have not acquired additional content for that specific sub-bubndle, but the MJB will always have at least some new content.

Our quarterly schema for the journals applies to 2016, making the next bundle due mid to late March. We posted 2.1 in late 2015 in order have extra time to catch up on production (there’s a lot of material :) ). I apologize if that was not made crystal clear or mistakenly communicated in previous forum posts.

That is very exciting news.

Any updates on this Matthew? Im trying to figure out my budget for March Madness and this may cause a conflict if released without a good window of notice. 

Thanks in advance!

I am in the same boat. I want to pick up a few things in MM but don't want to jeopardize getting Master Journal Bundle 2.1.

I enjoy that you are doing this. But, obviously, someone from faithlife has to speak to this.

That was the "Anyone" I was referring to in my post. I should have clarified ... Anyone [from Faithlife] Wink

Now John, I feel your pain, but where would we be if all of us posted threads and then bumped them again for every resource we were desperately waiting for? I know I've got at least five I'd really, really like to see released, including the infamous Encyclopedia Britannica, but I just try to be patient and read one of the many thousand other books I've already got in my library.

The answer from Faithlife is always going to be the same: It will be ready when it's ready.

My concern isn't that I just want the resources in my library (although I certainly do). My concern is that I want clarification concerning an answer that was already given earlier in the thread regarding the release date. Specifically, so that I can budget accordingly with the current sale that is taking place. We were told mid to late March. Is this still going to happen? If so, it would be nice to know so that those of us with limited funds can budget accordingly. 

This isn't an arbitrary attempt to get what I want. Trust me, I have enough. But, if this product is released without good window of warning while the March Madness sale is going on, it will be difficult to forecast a budget to be allocated for each.

John, I would just budget for the Journals to be in March, and then if I had any other money and wanted MM items then budget to add that also. Just my two centsWink

That's where I am at currently. But, I'm also not convinced that we will see the journals in March. It wouldnt be the first time something came up to hinder a projected release date, right? With that said, an update would be appreciated. If it's not going to be released in March as originally projected then I have more funds to allocate towards MM. I dont think an update is too much to ask for considering the previous statement made by Faithlife in this thread.

This is not about waving a flag for an individual resource I'm grateful for John drawing attention to it. This is about whether Logos is going to become a platform for keeping up to date with academic journals or not. So far I'm feeling that it is not :(
