Rich:

1. Subscribe to BSM. 

2. Included on the subscription mailing sticker include a unique password for each subscriber.

3. Log on to LOGOS, go to BSM, enter the unique password and download the BSM.

4. Can't get the unique password without a subscription and the password changes after renewal.

5. Makes everyone happy.

Good idea,  they can even be password protected if they come in .pdf form 

PDF is not an a good solution, it needs to be in Logos or its jus as useless as the paper copy. And mailing out the passwor is not much better for internatioal subscribers. Doesn't solve the problem of snail mai. All the licensing can be handled within the Logos Software, every subscriber gets access to the magazine at the same time and you get to make notes, lookup scripture references and search the magazine like any other resource. Full colour graphics are already handled by the software.  A pdf will be read, archived and forgotten about just like the paper copy.

Agreed, however a pdf version would kill fewer trees (unless folks decide to print everything...)

Agreed PDF would leave the trees happy but not us, so lets get it in Logos format so we can be both kind to the trees and kind to ourselves.

Bob Pritchett:

If we did make it available as a monthly digital subscription, would you prefer:

- an online PDF version that you could page through in a web browser, which might or might not have active hyperlinks / be full-text searchable.

- a full text edition in Logos format, which would be less visually interesting but wouldn't have ads.

Thanks for keeping this on your dashboard Bob.  Listening, and adjusting your business plan to accommodate your customer's needs is commendable and appreciated!  My preference is a full text Logos edition, however... I am open to a subscription deal that puts BSM into my library AND (at an additional cost) in PDF format, or links in my text edition that lets me click through to a web enabled pretty-fied graphics enabled version (because we all love us some pretty graphics, scan codes, etc., etc).

Web Browser potential attraction for Now and Cloud subscribers.

+1 Yes along with possible Journal bundling.

just wanted to update this thread (there are probably some more, but this seems to be very prominent and the last post is quite recent): Yes, as of 2018 BSM is available in Logos.

Current edition: https://www.logos.com/product/150251/bible-study-magazine-volume-10 (available for purchase and delivered as the issues are forthcoming, shipped for the first time as part of the Faithlife Connect subscription)  

Back issues since the beginning of BSM: https://www.logos.com/product/145946/bible-study-magazine-logos-ed-2008-2017 (PrePub, current status "in development")

I think that those who voted on uservoice (a very popular feature suggestion) can celebrate that their request has been granted and use their votes for other helpful ideas.

Thanks for that update! I didn't realise there was an electronic version available - and that it is supplied as part of the Faithlife Connect subscription. That is great. I just checked my Logos library and indeed the current magazines in Volume 10 are there.

Hopefully the next BSM Christmas sale will cover the digital edition as well...
