Stephen Steele:
Any chance of getting dynamic pricing on the current version of JETS? I have all but 2 and it's asking for full price.

It's a third-party product, and I don't think we can do DP on it. Your best option is probably to wait until we offer our edition. We're pushing hard to acquire the remaining journals. Hopefully it won't be too long before we get them.

Hey Phil,

I appreciate your quick responses on so many questions. If this is a repeat, please forgive; I cannot find it anywhere else.

Can you help me understand why JBL only goes back to 1981? That happens to coincide with the volumes I have. Is it possible that earlier volumes will be included?

Thanks!

Lew

Wim Kater:

Maybe a silly question..(Sad ) But what is the usefullnes / added value of Journals?

As a laymen I use Logos for biblestudy (Wordstudy, textstudy) and I already invest a lot in i.a. commentaries, dictionaries and basepackages (L4 Platinum, L5 Diamond, L6 Platinum).

Blessings, Wim

Hi Wim,

Even though I have used the Journals for academics, I also use them often in my Bible teaching. I can remember when I was teaching through Zechariah, and I came to Chapter 4. Just about every commentary I checked in Logos concerning the "lampstand vision" referred to the same journal article in their comments, but not one of them had the drawing of the lampstand or a lot of the details that were supposedly mentioned in that article. This was a case where a Journal article would have been more helpful than commentaries. Unfortunately at that time, Logos did not have the journal for that particular article, but some times they do. At that time I was able to track down the author and he so graciously sent me the article himself! BUT hopefully in the future, Logos will have all the articles that I need! Smile

Phil,

Is it possible to create a collection for just the most current volume of each journal, a TJL 2013/14?  Personally, I am most interested in the the current articles.  (Although I do see value in the older ones as well.)

You may well know what you are asking for, but in my mind doing this would be imposing a serious limitation on your study. Many journals publish only 1 issue a year, with 4 being the maximum. Each volume has about 5-6 major articles. A one or two year collection wouldn't cover too many topics or scripture passages. (You might also miss Part One which appeared in last year's journal.)

Most articles don't go out-of-date in a year. (These aren't news magazines.) Some very current theological issues have been developing over years and the most recent article alone will leave you with only a partial understanding of the issue.

If you were going to limit yourself time-wise I'd open the window up to at least five years. I believe ten years would be even better.

As I said, you may know exactly what you are looking for so take my comments with that understanding.

Yes, that's possible, but that would result in a very small 16-volume collection. Is that really what you're looking for? We've tried to create as few collections as possible to meet the most common needs. Creating custom collections for everyone would be quite labor intensive. We're open to creating others where there's demand. It would be good to hear if others have the same desire.

I do not. When I buy a journal, I want all the issues from the earliest to the latest. I could see that someone who just wanted to read the journal as it comes out would want only the latest issues, but for me, I will be searching them looking for various articles. Also, I want to be able to follow references in my books and read the articles. So I'm not interested in just the latest issues. That's how I plan to use the journals.

Very pleased to see the TJL pre-pub info..  Disappointed at all of the missing content vis-a-vis the old Galaxy TJL.  And surprised that though the content of the new collection is greatly reduced from the Galaxy version, the price of the new collection actually went up by more than 10%.  Paying more for less is not what I've come to expect from Logos.

I thought the same thing and then reviewed the following:

  • Bibliotheca Sacra 1–171, 171 vols. (1844–2014)

I do not have the older volumes that were sold separately from the TJL annual updates. The pricing per Phil is .50 per volume. So I am getting around 16 new volumes and around 100 older bibliotheca volumes for $56. Based on the .50 per volume, the additional 21 missing volumes, assuming we own TJL 1-15 should be around $10 with dynamic pricing. Phil can confirm.

We're working on it. You can help us prioritize which TJL journals to get next by filling out this form.

I'm not sure I follow. Galaxie priced their journals at $1 per journal volume. Each year they'd release another 50 volumes and sell them for $50. Our TJL Upgrade bundle is priced at half that. We're offering 400 journals for $200. I'm not sure how that amounts to paying more for less. What am I missing?

Here's a question Phil: If you are able to add, say JETS, and we preordered a bundle, will our price go up, or will we get it at the current rate. 

FWIW, I put my order in for the Upgrade Bundle.

The annual update for Galaxy's Theological Journal was $50.00.  My dynamic pricing for Logos' TJL update is $56 but, as has been noted by several posters, a large number of the journals included in Galaxy's collection are missing from Logos' TJL update.  Having read your posts, I understand why they are missing but it does appear that I will be paying more for updates to fewer journals.  

A side-note, i have already filled out the form about which journals I consider a priority.

Have you checked how many new volumes you get for that $56?  I bet it is closer to 100 than 50.
