***I just checked vol. 80 #8 of MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING, and the letter from
the publisher (p.8) states that STRATEGIC FINANCE is a "new monthly
flagship publication" to be launched in March, and that MANAGEMENT
ACCOUNTING "will be re-launched as a quarterly later this year and
positioned as a scholarly journal".  I am tempted to add, which is why
scholarly customers received so much notice of the venture, but I shall
resist ;)

***Anyway, I called our vendor and was told the only information they were
given is that MA subscriptions would be filled with issues of SF; a
re-launching of MA came as news to my rep.

***What are other libraries doing about the situation, and do you have any
more/different information?  I am wondering specifically about the wisdom
of cataloging and shelving SF for a few months if we are going to go back
to receiving MA, then.
