We received July 23, 1999. It is volume 285, no. 5427. July 30 is also
enumerated v.285, no. 5427. Looks like July 30 has wrong issue number.

Hope this helps.

If you check the inside table of contents page you will find that the July
30 issue is v.285 #5428.  The number on the outside of the magazine did not
get changed.  The July 23 issue is numbered 5427.

I have a July 23rd issue of Science, vol. 285 No. 5427. The front is of
cross sections of Arabidopsis flowers (image width, 0.56mm)...  Kind of
looks like green bubbles with blue and orange masses in the middle.  I
haven't received a July 30th issue yet, but do have, July 9th to the 23rd.

If this is of any help to you, Deborah.

There is a July 23rd issue of Science.  The numbering on the cover of the
July 30th issue is incorrect, the inside contents page has the correct
number. We have received, v. 285, no. 5426, for July 16, v. 285, no. 5427
for July 23rd, and v. 285, no. 5428 for July 30th. Hope this clears up the
problem for you.

Check the title page:  July 30, 1999 is actually no. 5428.  You must be
missing the July 23 issue that is n. 5427.

        It appears to be a numbering error on the spine and cover of the
issues in question.  We have checked in all issues for July, and the July
23 issue is numbered correctly on the title page as 5427; the July 30
issue is numbered correctly on the t.p. as 5428.

        Hope this helps.

Dear Deborah and other Serials Listers,

Science did have an issue for July 23, correctly numbered #5427.  It
includes pages 485-628.  The issue dated July 30 is incorrectly numbered
#5427 on the cover.  It is correctly numbered #5428 on the Table of Contents
page.  It includes pages 629-792.

Hope this helps!

The publisher didn't fail to publish July 23 issue but misprint the cover
of no.5428 to no.5427. So what we have now should be:

v.285:no.5426 (July 16,1999)____ok
v.285:no.5427 (July 23,1999)____ok
v.285:no.5428 (July 30,1999)____on the cover, misprinted as no.5427, but
inside (no.5428) is correct.

Hope it will help.

It has been pointed out to me that the Cover/spine of  Vol. 285
No. 5427 of the July 30, 1999 Science differs from the No. on the
TOC.  It should be No. 5428.

I have received a July 23, 1999 Science which is Vol. 285  No. 5427.

A staff member at Tech looked into this and it looks like 30 July 1999 was
mismarked on the front cover as v. 285 no. 5427.  If you look inside the
issue it is actually v. 285 no. 5428.  So you should have:

23 July 1999 no. 5427
30 July 1999 no. 5428 (mismarked)
The next issue should be 6 August 1999, no. 5429.

Hope this helps,

Dear Debbie,

According to our Science library check-in staff, the July 23 issue of
_Science_ is marked #5427; the July 30 issue indicates #5427 on the
cover, but inside it is #5428.  Hope this helps.

This morning we discovered that the July 30th issue of Science had the
incorrect number printed on cover and spine. It reads no. 5427 but should
be 5428. It is no, 5428 on the contents page. The July 23rd issue is
v. 285 : no. 5427.
