We frequently feature “pre-order” Logos specials here on the Academic Blog, as well as “pre-pub” and “community pricing.” But what exactly is pre-order, pre-pub, and community pricing, and why should you be buying books this way? And, how will this new Pre-Order Preview series benefit you as a reader of this blog (if you’re not yet signed up, drop your email here)?[Read more…]
You don’t need to spend a fortune to get top-notch scholarship for your research, papers, or lessons. Logos’ Community Pricing program lets you tell us what you’re willing to pay for classic commentaries, monographs, sermons, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and other scholarly resources enhanced with our powerful tagging and research tools. Tell us the most you’d pay for a product, and once we have enough orders to cover production, you’ll only pay the lowest possible price.
Watch how it works:
Community Pricing is perfect for anyone looking for great content in the Logos format, but it gives students and scholars some distinct advantages.
Strengthen your Logos library on a budget
If you’re like a lot of people, you have loads of commentaries on the Pauline epistles and other New Testament books. But how’s your collection on Isaiah or Ezekiel? Or maybe your focus is on biblical studies, and the church-history portion of your Logos library is a little thin.
Our team curates the best content we can find on specific subjects (like the philosophy of free will or the Reformation and Renaissance in Italy), a book of the Bible or biblical genre (like the book of Amos or the Pauline Epistles), or the works and influence of a specific author (like B.F. Westcott or Ulrich Zwingli). Once you identify weak areas, it’s easy to browse Community Pricing titles and bid on collections that beef up your library. That way, when your next paper or research project comes along, you’ll have what you need to hone in on specific issues—and you won’t break the bank doing it.
Access a diverse range of scholarship for your research
It’s important to be evenhanded in your treatment of others’ positions, and the best way to do that is to study the work of those who hold views different from your own. In our Community Pricing collections, we strive to provide content from myriad theological traditions. For instance, the Classic Studies on the Ten Commandments collection includes volumes by Baptist, Anglican, Catholic, and Presbyterian scholars writing from both conservative and liberal perspectives. Community Pricing is a great way to fill out your library with a broad array of theological views.
Get the most out of Logos 6
Chances are, you use Logos for your Bible study and theological research because of its powerful tools. But to get the most out of the Factbook, guides, and other awesome tools, you need a robust Logos library. What’s one of the most affordable ways to build a library chock full of resources that populate these features? You guessed it: Community Pricing. Once a Community Pricing title’s cost is covered, it goes into production, receiving rich tagging that fully integrates the resource into your library and takes advantage of Logos’ tools.
