    There are publishers who are generating "niche" publications available
only on the Web through traditional subscription procedures.

    I have seen mention made, and in my cataloging of Internet serial
resources, have come across, quite a number of online serials available
only through subscription, especially relating to more commercially- and
legally-significant subjects, though this is not always the case.

    Some specific titles that I know fit both of your criteria above, are:
(all these via OCLC, in fact, at one point or another in time)

        Current opinions in medicine
        Current opinions in biology
        Online journal of current clinical trials
        Online journal of knowledge synthesis for nursing

    The World Wide Web will make it easier for publishers to follow
more-standard publishing/pricing practices for online publications,
blocking non-subscribed users from accessing the particular homepage(s)
involved. There will be more subscribe-for-online-access-serials in the
future, especially as the commercial aspects of the Internet develop

In response to Marilyn Quinn's question, I know of only one electronic
journal with no print equivalent which charges a subscription fee.  It is
the Chicago journal of theoretical computer science from MIT press.  I am
certain there are probably a few other journals which fit this criteria.

Have you tried ARL in Washington?  I think the Association of Research Libra
ries puts a bibliography of e-journals.  I think also that MIT Press has
an e-journal which it published and charges a fee.
