Re: Need examples of quirky e-journals Lynda J Garrett 21 Mar 2008 17:43 UTC

Here's another example from Springer:

The site is listed as Plant Ecology, but v. 1, 1948--v. 127, 1996 this
title is Vegetatio.  The only way to tell is to actually open a PDF and
check the journal name at the top of the first page.

[SERIALST] Need examples of quirky e-journals

Apologies for cross-posting.

We know we've run across several examples of e-journals that appear on a
provider's site under the latest title only, even though some issues in
the archives were originally published under an earlier title.
Conversely we've seen e-journals where one title is divided between 2
URLs because part of the run is in the backfiles and the rest in current

But now we've been asked to provide some examples on short notice, and
we're scrambling to identify titles and websites where these kinds of
problems can be seen.

If you've encountered some of these titles/sites recently and can help
us identify examples, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
