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)
Approximately 2.5 million pages of full-text articles: every word, graphic and table from the original article. The articles in TEEAL are stored on a 1 TB external hard drive for use on either a computer or on a local area network.

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

Due to a specific Gates grant, additional discount options are also available for educational or research institutions located within the following countries: Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. If your institution is located within one of the above countries, please contact the TEEAL Project Office at for additional discount specifics.

Annual updates
Journal literature spanning one publication year

Each update adds thousands of new articles to the TEEAL collection, and is valued at about $75,000 USD in developed nations. Updates with the previous year’s content are released each December and sent to subscribers on a small set of DVDs.

*Base cost for Annual updates: Contact the TEEAL Project Office at for additional details.
