To purchase TEEAL, you must be a public or non-profit organization in an eligible country. Please consult the eligibility list.
Why does TEEAL have a cost associated with it?
TEEAL is a self-funded non-profit project. The content itself is free to eligible institutions. Publishers have generously donated journals with an estimated value over $1 million. However, TEEAL is a physical information product that involves expenses related to the annual production of updates, upgrades, shipping, administration, outreach and training. TEEAL is available at a fraction of the cost of individual subscriptions to its journals. For additional pricing information, contact us.
The Basic Collection
Journals spanning 1993-2011 (2012 material available in early 2014)

The base cost for a 1993-2011 Basic Collection is $5,000 USD. Contact the TEEAL Project Office at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
