We have a subscription to Life Sciences and are missing several issues.
They give the standard response, "gee it looks like we sent them so you
be lying."

Ever since Elsevier reorganized their operations the service, IMO, has
down the drain.  I never used to need to claim Elsevier journals, now
claims run a close second to the #1 problem publisher.  I have current
claims for skipped issues of Brain Research, Free Radical Biology &
Medicine, and Mechanisms of Ageing & Development, to name a few more.

Possibly they will discover that bigger does not necessarily make them
best publisher.  A quality customer service department would speak

Is anyone else having a problem with Life Sciences which is published by
ELSEVIER? This journal cost almost $4000 and we have not had any issues
since the first of December 2001.  It is a weekly journal that used to
be published by Pergamon. EBSCO says Elsevier in London will not answer
their e-mails.  They also tell me that the New York Elsevier office said
that all EBSCO accounts are handled in London.
