Re: Journals without wrappers? Marilyn Carney 29 Jan 2008 14:48 UTC

We receive several journals without wrappers and most are not damaged.
Rarely have I had to send in a claim for damaged journals.

Dear colleagues

Due to our own environmental concerns, and because some of our society
partners are requesting it, we're investigating the feasibility of
sending out some journals without wrappers. The cover of these
would instead contain a sticker with address information which could
easily removed.

We understand that a number of journals, notably Nature and Science,
already sent out this way in the US?

We would appreciate answers, on or off list, to the following

1. Do you receive journals without wrappers?
2. If so, do they arrive damaged?
3. Do you/how often do you have to raise claims to the publisher for
damaged copies?

Many thanks in advance.
