Re: Change in print frequency for selected T&F journals John Lucas 23 Feb 2006 18:14 UTC

Hello Virginia and all,

We still subscribe to those titles, and to provide information from
those journals to our users, the only way for them to get that
information is through the online access.

We had set up electronic access to those titles before.  It was another
way for our users to get what they want, the way they want it. In these
(3 titles for us) that an archival print version will come out some 4-6
months later is not relevant (to us)

However, we still will be going with the print + online because to go
only with the online will deny us an archival copy, if sometime in the
future, we have to cancel our subscription, all the online access goes

Good morning, Learned Colleagues.

I hate to bring this up again now that it's died down, but I'm
how others are dealing with this situation.  Our policy is to not
access to "free with print" titles because of their volatile nature.
the selected T&F titles, however, the combined print issues are not
available until as much as three months after they are available
online.  I
believe this should be an exception to the rule and that we should
online access through our catalog and our A-Z list, but I'm butting my
against a brick wall.

If your library is setting up the online access for these titles,
let me know what rationale you used.  Please respond to me directly
I'll summarize for the list.

Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts on this.

Hello All

An updated list of journals affected with expected print publication
dates and print and online ISSNs will appear by end of play Thursday

I would like to clarify:

1) Both the online and the print issues will continue to correspond in
terms of volume and issue numbers.  So if for example Volume 1 Issue 1
is published online in Jan, Issue 2 in Feb and Issue 3 in March, the
combined print issue which will be published in March, will be
Volume 1 Issues 1-3 2006.

There is no change in the way we will number print or online issues.
Therefore the citation will reflect the volume/issue/pagination of the
online and print issue (as they will be the same).  As John Lucas
"consider the archival print issue as 3 issues bound together."  "with
the covers of the other issues bound in the archival print copy".

2) The expected publication dates of print issues, and a complete list
of the journals involved will be listed on our Librarians' website at

3) We offer online-only subscriptions but have no plans to offer
unbundled print-only subscriptions. If we were to make any further
changes in future then we would ensure that our print customers would
not be disadvantaged.

Kind regards
