IUCr 1996 Triennial Financial Report - The Journals Funds

Tables 6, 7 and 8 give the accounts for Acta Crystallographica (AC), the Journal of Applied Crystallography (JAC) and the Journal of Synchrotron Radiation (JSR). For AC and JAC, the profit for both journals has stayed rather constant during the triennium, if the transfers to other funds are taken into account. The total number of pages printed for AC and JAC were 5614, 5680 and 6748 in 1993, 1994 and 1995, respectively. This represents an increase of 20% over the triennium. The Finance Committee (FC) and the Executive Committee (EC) have monitored the financial development for both journals very closely and, taking account of the predicted increase in the number of pages printed, the prices were increased by 7% for 1993, by 5% for 1994 and by 5% for 1995. In 1993, the first volume of Section D of AC was distributed free of charge.

JSR was launched in 1995 (with an Inaugural Issue at the end of 1994) and was distributed free of charge to existing subscribers to JAC and AC Section D.

The number of subscriptions decreased by about 10% for AC and 7% for JAC over the triennium. This figure for AC excludes the new Section D, which was distributed free of charge in 1993 and at the end of 1995 had attracted 881 subscribers. For further details, see the Triennial Report by the Chairmen of the Commission on Journals.
