I would like to add another gripe to the list:  sizeable mid-subscription
year rate increases to already very expensive journals.  The Journal of
Divorce and Remarriage and the Journal of Homosexuality ($900 and $770 on
my 2002 renewal list) have both been jacked up (pardon the low diction,
but there isn't more appropriate language) the last three subscription
years between $50 and $105.  With the automatic inflation from one
subscription year to the next, the intentions behind these increases are

If I can chime in from the monograph side, I'm noticing that Haworth books
seem to be getting skinny while the prices keep going up.  Fortunately they
publish many in both paper and cloth (always in some series or other if not
as a "simultaneous" match with a journal issue), but even the paperback
prices sometimes seem high.  And, many books don't have illustrations and
the formats look like basic word-processing.  At my university our social
sciences faculty continue to love Haworth publications, though, plus,
Haworth does publish in areas that other publishers may leave alone.

How do others of you feel, and do you see anything similar in Haworth
