Re: Wording for journal cancellation survey van Sickle, Jennifer 11 Sep 2008 13:21 UTC

We asked faculty to rank journals based on the following criteria:

1.  Essential for teaching and research or for student assignments.

2.  Nice to have, but not essential.

3.  No longer needed; does not support current teaching/research.

In general, journals that students need for their work are our highest
priority.

Subject: [SERIALST] Wording for journal cancellation survey

We're getting ready to send out
an online survey to our faculty
members asking for their assistance
in determining which titles we
should keep/cancel from a specific
publisher.

We want to keep this simple and not
give responders too many options
for their answers.  We're thinking
about giving them the choices
(for each title) of:

_ Critical
_ Neutral
_ Cancel

Has anyone else surveyed their users
recently or have any suggestions for
wording?

Thank you,
Lee Ann Howlett
