Re: title change? American journal of hospice & palliative care Michael A. Edwards 07 Apr 2009 12:13 UTC

My take on the rules would say that this is a major change because the
meaning of the title has changed, i.e. "care" has changed to
"medicine".  Those considering it a minor change are probably counting
words and saying that this is a minor change because the new wording
comes after the first five words, but this rule doesn't apply if the
meaning of the title has changed.

> Hi, all- would those experienced catalogers out there consider this a major title change, from _American journal of hospice & palliative care_ to _American journal of hospice & palliative medicine_?  OCLC #21269606 considers it a minor change, while several OCLC #s, including 57519500, consider it a major change.
