I sent an e-mail message to the publisher.

The response was  "the Typo"  will be corrected in susbsequent issues.
In other words the volume number for 1996 is v.29.

Isn't periodical check-in maintenance  fun ?!!!

Hi everyone,

I have a question about Editor & Publisher. We received 129:1 dated
1/6/96 and 129:2 dated 1/13/96. Then the volume jumped to 130:3 dated
1/20/96. What gives?

In general, how do you all check in items when the numbers are off?
Do you wait to see if the publisher corrects things, or check in
the expected issue, or check in as is, with a note?

Thank you!

Ours went from vol. 128 #52 directly to vol. 130 #1.  The dates are the
same as yours.

Generally with odd things like this, I wait to see what the next issue is
numbered.  Sometimes it's just a fluke, and so--in this case--if the issue
after 130 #1 was 129 #2, I would've gone into the stacks and corrected the
actual physical issue to read v. 129 #1.  If two in a row are weird, I take
it that's the way they want it, or the poor things don't know any better.

My 1/13/96 is marked as v.130:no.2 not v.129.
My guess is that the first one was misnumbered.
