Hi Athena,

I’m not aware of another source, especially a consolidated source. Like most other things, there are details and ways of negotiating the per article charge to come to a price that is different than what is mentioned in the publisher sites you highlighted.

My library has extensive, multi-year experience with each of the ones you mentioned, as well as with Sage. We’ve used PPV for majority of access to Wiley, Sage, and Elsevier journal content since 2010, and Nature since ~ 2014. I am not directly involved in the day-to-day details of our negotiations and dealings with each publisher, but I do know that pricing can vary significantly from “list price” and generally has been cheaper than using a third party service such as CCC’s Get It Now.

Subject: [Eril-l] Pay per view fees


I’ve been asked to look up pay-per-view fees for major publishers so we can calculate how expensive it would be if our users had to buy the articles view-by-view.

Is there a recent consolidated source that gives the pay-per-view prices for major publishers/platforms?

Thus far I have found the sources for info on three platforms.

·         Elsevier: https://www.elsevier.com/solutions/sciencedirect/content/pay-per-view

·         Wiley: http://olabout.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-404512.html#ppv

·         Nature: https://www.nature.com/libraries/pay-per-view/index.html

I’m about to hunt down other sources, but maybe somebody already has current info.
