Re: Are Journals in JSTOR Current Serials? Hutchens, Chad 22 Aug 2007 22:36 UTC

I don't see why you wouldn't count a JSTOR title if you're receiving the
title individually (even though it's in JSTOR as well).

Some titles in JSTOR are still active (in that they're still being
published), some have ceased publication (but the full run isn't
available in JSTOR because the moving wall hasn't caught up with the
last issue), and some are have ceased and JSTOR offers access to the
full run of the journal.  So I guess the answer is, it depends on the

Clear as mud right?

Subject: [SERIALST] Are Journals in JSTOR Current Serials?

Line 26 of the Academic Libraries Survey asks for the number of current
serial titles held at the end of the Fiscal Year. The instructions for
line 26 read:

Part D - Library Collections
Current serial titles (line 26) - Report the total number of titles in
all formats. If the title comes in
both paper and electronic form, count it twice. Count each individual
title if it is received as part
of a publisher's package. Include paper and microfilm government
documents issued serially if
they are accessible through the library's catalog. Report indexing and
abstracting services that
may contain full-text in line 27.

Do any libraries count JSTOR journals as current serial titles?
