Re: Need examples of quirky e-journals Andree Rathemacher 21 Mar 2008 15:47 UTC

One of my favorites, on SpringerLink:

*Swiss Journal of geosciences*  (1661-8726)    More full text
          from 06/16/2007 to present in SpringerLink Contemporary (1997 -

*Eclogae geologicae Helvetiae*  (0012-9402)    More full text
          from 05/01/2004 to 12/14/2006 in SpringerLink Contemporary (1997 -
I can see why they changed the title!

Each has a separate URL and page on SpringerLink, but they link to one

Annual Reviews, on the other hand: I remember that they put all issues under
the current title, essentially obscuring title change history.

For example:

*Annual review of ecology and systematics*  (0066-4162)    More full text
           from 1996 to 2002 in Annual Reviews Complete A-Z
*Annual review of ecology, evolution, and systematics*  (1543-592X)    More

          from 2003 to present in Annual Reviews Complete A-Z
