"The initial mission," said Aileen McHugh, JHUP
director of electronic publishing, "was to make available electronically the approximately 40 journals then published by JHUP
and [to] develop a sustainable institutional subscription model for scholarly journals online."
Project MUSE was launched in 1995 by Johns Hopkins University Press to offer the full text of JHUP
scholarly journals via the Web.
Forty-five new journal titles are committed for inclusion in Project MUSE's full-text offerings for next year, which, with the 46 JHUP titles currently in the database, brings the total number of journals available in MUSE to 91.
Project MUSE was launched in 1995 by JHUP, in collaboration with the Milton S.
Project Muse, an electronic scholarly publishing venture of the Johns Hopkins University Press (JHUP), has announced the achievement of a landmark goal of 40 academic journal titles available online as of January 1.
A Project Muse institutional subscription offers comprehensive access to the full text of all 40 JHUP journals, along with advanced search functions that allow for searching by author, title, or keyword; in the tables of contents or full text of the journals; and across all the journals in Muse or just selected titles.
