To all:

A telephone conversation with the Customer Service department of
Publisher's weekly has confirmed that the volume numbering is in error.

The issues should be numbered as follows:

January 1, 2001 v.248:no.1
January 8, 2001 v.248:no.2
January 15, 2001        v.248:no.3

The publisher will correct this at some point, however, no time frame was

I emailed the publisher about it yesterday. Yes they know about the
problem and have corrected it for the Jan 22 issue. The volume should be
248. They also mentioned that they put a correction notice in the Jan
15th issue, but the error on that issue compounded the confusion.

We just checked with Publishers Weekly editors who have told us to use v.
248 for issues dating Jan. 1, Jan. 8, and Jan 15, 2001.  In other words,
all issues for 2001 will now say v.248.

contact publisher.

Has anyone had problems with the numbering of Publishers Weekly?  Looks
like this:

Jan. 1, 2001-    v. 248, no.1
Jan. 8, 2001-    v. 249, no.2
Jan. 15, 2001-  v. 250, no.3

Looks pretty straightforward, but this is an usual pattern. The norm is
using the same volume number for 51 issues.  We've called the customer
relations department at Publishers Weekly, but they seem unaware of the
situation...  Has anyone heard anything?
