Full text articles from H W Wilson's databases Rachel BenEliezer 13 Nov 2007 11:45 UTC

Dear Librarians,

A couple of years ago we purchased the H.W.Wilson Science Fulltext
database. Lately I have noticed that a number of journals that should
have so called "full text" (PDF) are missing graphs, pictures and
tables. So in fact "full text" is not really full text which also means
that cancelling the print version would be out of the question. How does
one go about checking which journals are affected? Is it just a random

Is this policy deliberate on the part of the publisher or the
aggregator? If so why - copyright reasons? or to ensure continued
revenue through individual subscriptions.

I mention Wilson but I think this probably happens with other databases

I would be interested to hear your comments.
