CINAHL gives a nice listing for the titles they index: http://www.cinahl.com/library/journals.htm Karen Burns Serials Librarian UHN Health Sciences Libraries phone: 416-340-3429 fax: 416-340-4384 email: email@example.com -----Original Message----- From: SERIALST: Serials in Libraries Discussion Forum [mailto:SERIALST@LIST.UVM.EDU]On Behalf Of Olga Ayoub Sent: Wednesday, November 08, 2006 8:39 AM To: SERIALST@LIST.UVM.EDU Subject: [SERIALST] peer-reviewed journals Are there any guides or listings of journals (other than in Ulrich's or Cabell's) which will provide more details on which journal titles are peer-reviewed, editorially-reviewed and blind or double-blind reviewed?

Who applies it? Depending on the size of your institution and/or the programs offered by your institution (the website above spells it out in detail) either you apply it or the pricing agent/publisher. If your institution does not fall into a neat Tier, then you may have to have a discussion with the agent/publisher applying the pricing. Since Wesleyan University is one of those institutions that falls between Tiers, I am always having to make a case for appropriate Tier pricing. Who manages it? Depends on how much you trust your vendor to be able to manage that information for your account. Two of the larger vendors with whom I work can keep this info as part of our records in their data files. Otherwise, its in your hands to assure the correct pricing has been assigned for what you think is your Tier. I am assuming that the above information relates to the Tier pricing you are encountering. But who knows: maybe some publisher thought up another method that I have not yet come across. Gotta love the creative economic models for serial pricing. Certainly keeps us on our toes to stay informed! ************************************** Helen M.
