Questions regarding PEDIATRICS David Weeks 02 Feb 1999 12:34 UTC
Good morning folks,
I have some thoughts and questions regarding the title Pediatrics.
We recently cancelled our subscription for 1999 partly because the
title was fulltext on EBSCOHOST Elite. When we went to bind vol. 102,
1998 we realized that we were missing pages 1225-1331 (the Nov.
suppl.). We called the publisher and were told that the supplements
were now published only online. We went into Ebscohost and of course
the online supplement was not listed. Since we cancelled our
subscription we were unable to obtain the supplement on the
Pediatrics web site.
It has also come to our attention that with every issue of Pediatrics
there are approx. 10-14 articles published only online. The abstracts
of these articles are included in every issue (the green pages).
NOTE: Medline indexes these abstracts by abstract no. (E numbers) but
does not give the consecutive numbered pages where these abstracts
are found in the issue (Ebscohost does include the abstract of these
articles as included in the print copy but do not have any of the
Does anyone know whether the online material is going to be included
in Ebscohost (we do have a query to Ebsco)? Am I correct in assuming
that it will be necessary to maintain a subscription to Pediatrics in
order to access the online articles?
Oh what fun!!!
I would appreciate any comments.
