Toxicological & Environmental Chemistry (not to be confused with
Environmental Toxicology & Chemistry) seems to be a bad bet.  It is
listed in Ulrich's as 141 ECU per volume for 1993 with 5 vol/yr. This
adds up to roughly $792 (at $1.123/ECU).  It ranks 76/104 in "Chemistry"
66/89 in "Environmental Sciences" and "47/52 in "Toxicology" in the
1992 Journal Citation Reports for Science Citation Index, based on the
1992 Impact Factor (mean citations/published article for 1990-1991).

ETC ranks 18th in Chemistry, 3rd in Environmental Sciences, 8th in Toxicology.
Are you sure that your patron doesn't have the two confused?

    One of our Geology professors has requested that the Library
    subscribe to the Gordon & Breach journal _Toxicological and
    Environmental Chemistry_.  Based on our experience with G&B, I
    would rather not do anymore business with them.  I am trying to
    persuade the professor that it would not be in our best interest to
    order this journal.  One strong argument would be the price, but,
    as you know, G&B does not publish their prices.  Does anyone out
    there subscribe to _Toxicological and Environmental Chemistry_?  If
    so, would you mind telling me how much you paid for the 1993
    subscription.  Please reply to me personally:
