NEF : Nouvelles Etudes Francophones Amy Ranger 27 Feb 2008 16:24 UTC

Hello all,

I have a journal in hand that seems to be a reincarnation, but I'm not enough of a serialist yet to understand the nuances of the catalog records.

The title of the journal is NEF : Nouvelles Etudes Francophones, (vol. 22, no. 1, Printemps 2007)
Table of contents matches information on the website:

There is a lot of information on the history of this publication in the journal, which is contributing to my confusion... it begins: "Nouvelles Etudes Francophones (NEF) (ISSN 1552-3152) is the official journal of the International Council of the Francophone Studies / ... From 1995 to 2004, the journal was entitled Etudes Francophones (ISSN 1093-9334), from 1993 to 1995, Revue Francophone (ISSN 0890-9555) and from 1990 to 1993, Revue Francophone de Louisiane (ISSN 0890-9555). This issue, the sixth under the new title NEF, continues the numbering of Etudes Francophones."

So, it looks like the journal has had two earlier ISSNs:
and that the current ISSN is 1552-3152.

It also looks like the journal has had [possibly?] four previous titles:
Revue Francophone de Louisiane
Revue Francophone
Etudes Francophones
Nouvelles Etudes Francophones
and that now it is primarily known as NEF.

Furthermore, it seems like OCLC #56407212 has been closed, but I'm not sure if it was done correctly, or if the new record, OCLC #190846710, is quite right.

Would one of you take a look at this for me, please?

Thank you.
