- I'm a seminary student and need routine access to scholarly/peer reviewed journals. I checked out what logos has to offer (because I love logos!) however was disappointed with the options, I have the platinum package which is pretty $$$. However, reading your post, I checked out galaxie and must say that I am extremely excited about this new service! I subscribed and right away was granted access to all there journals. $5 a month is pretty reasonable. I honestly feel that their service should be included in the logos package I have, being that I have paid a grip for it. It will be a bit of an inconvienance going between galaxie and logos however, they really have everything I need in one central location. If the "master bundle package" of journals included the scholarly peer/reviewed quality of the major journals (the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Bibliotheca Sacra, Grace Theological Journal, and the Westminster Theological Journal) then it would be nice, but it doesn't. Also, you can cancel galaxie anytime. So if you have a paper due and just need access once, then pay your $5 and you have it for a month!
- The Master Journal Bundle is not really what you need if you only need the Galaxie Journals. This would be the better bundle for you. https://www.logos.com/product/46387/tjl-upgrade-bundle. It would be more reasonable and include just the Galaxie Journals. The Master Journal Bundle includes the Galaxie Journals plus a couple other bundles. I purchased the Galaxie Journals under the old Theological Journal Library and are dynamic price upgrading to the TJL Upgrade Bundle. I can actually get the Galaxy Journal subscription online free with my seminary, but I've found the search interface so clunky. Having them inside my Logos library where I can perform powerful searches and easily cite them makes life SO much easier versus the web interface.TJL Upgrade Bundle (400 vols.)Examine issues in theology, biblical studies, ministry, church history with distinguished scholars and practitioners from around the world with the Master Journal Bundle.
