We would like to purchase electronic journal consortium in these subject areas. Can you please suggest any one of the electronic resources which highly useful to the students, researchers and faculty members within the budget.

Dear Sri Biju Varghese,
Thanks for your post. I have observed from your post that your college has Six different Research Departments.
By the way, I am afraid, I could not clearly understand what you have actually wanted to mean by the words Research Departments ? Is it that these departments impart teaching in postgraduate level (like M.Sc or MA etc.) and there are some Research Scholars doing Doctoral Research (for Ph.D)? If it is so, then you can approach the INFLIBNET. They provide free access to various clustered e-journals to Post Graduate institutes under UGC & Universities. They also accepts paid membership. You may check with their website. Otherwise, there is no consortium which can provide access to such varied subject fields.
One thing,I would like to inform you that in case any Non-Government/Private/Profit Making establishment proposes for their products, you MUST ask for their lists of journals and ask them to clearly mention which national/international (indexing/abstracting) databases cover those journals and ask for the impact factors of the journals. And always ask for Printed & Signed proposal before making any payment.
Since subscription of journals involve financial transactions This is for your own safety and that of your institute's as well.

We have six doctoral research departments.
We want to subscribe the journal consortium like EBSCO, Science Direct, Etc, already we have the N-LIST subscription of INFLIBNET,
Now we are searching for the electronic resource like N-LIST

Dear Sri Biju Varghese, Thanks for your post. I am sorry for the delayed response as I had
Sir, you better go for Science Direct. It covers all subjects domains.
