Our subscriptions for 2014: which ones to keep, which ones to cancel, which ones to add

Cancellation target amount: 4%: $2661 for Education (non-KHP) and $616 for KHP.  Add to these amounts any additional money necessary to fund any new subscriptions.

Our target amount for Education non-KHP would have been higher, but from the cancellations last year we still had $1337 in savings.

Target amount includes:

  • money lost due to any new budget cuts
  • money necessary to cover for increased subscription prices (inflation estimated at 5%)
  • money necessary to cover for any new subscriptions (cost of new subs includes an additional 20% processing fee)

Here is the official library memo on the FY14 budget cuts .

Brad’s decisions: Education (non-KHP) and KHP.  If funding is available Brad will submit requests for the following new subscriptions:

My notes regarding my priority decisions. Some subscriptions were marked for cancelling because we would still (most likely!) have access through at least 2 of the e-journal database aggregators.

For your information:

Comforting words: For the subs that we cancel we might continue to have access through the aggregated content that we “rent” from the EBSCOhost (Academic Search Premier title list), ProQuest (title list) APA (title list), Project Muse (title list), etc., databases. We own JSTOR (title list), so its content won’t go away, but it often lacks the current volume(s). Anybody has the free access to journals available in the NLM’s spectacular PubMed Central (title list). Note that these databases often lack the journal’s current volume. Failing these options, you can use ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan) to order copies of articles that you need. Of course, the aggregators and ILLiad also connect you with articles from the journals to which we never did subscribe.

Bundle burden: The Library system has bundled deals with 3 very expensive publishers: Elsevier, Wiley and Springer. Our contracts practically prohibit cancelling any of the bundled titles… but there might be some possible work-arounds. In the list below I’ve identified the bundled titles. (For any Wiley title to which we don’t have access… just ask me… we have Wiley “tokens” that we can apply for pay-per-view access.)

Here below list the subscriptions currently charged to the Education Library budget. Subscriptions charged to the KHP budget list separately at the end.

You might not see one of your journals listed… but, if we have current access, it might be charged to a different budget. Check for our current library-wide print holdings using InfoKat and our current electronic holdings using our E-journals list.

In this list the “Ulrich’s” link gives you: detailed info on the journal; Get Text @ UK (which then links you to any available e-access, plus the record in InfoKat); Ulrich’s might also link to JCR data (impact factor, etc.).

  • Christine Mallozzi says:

    My apologies for being late with these comments. They represent my department’s input. I was asked to advocate for the following being “saved”:
    advocate for at least the following journals to be “saved”
    Language Arts
    Reading and Writing Quarterly
    Reading Psychology
    Written Communication
    Adult Education Quarterly
    International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education
    Journal of Literacy Research (essential!!)
    Teachers College Record
    Urban Education

    One member wrote…”I think it would reasonable to cut ‘low use’ electronic
    journals that have accompanying ‘high impact’ hard copy readerships (like
    Teachers College Record or Reading/Writing Quarterly)…I imagine the
    online offerings are lower costs, but that might be one way to eliminate
    from such long lists:)”

    Another faculty member offered the following:
    “These are ones that are important in the fields I work in or to a graduate program. That doesn’t mean the others aren’t, but these are important for social studies education or in middle level education/childhood education. I’m listing them in order of importance.

    Top of my list: TRSE is our most imp. research outlet specific to social studies; SS is also imp. outlet for social studies scholars; Teachers College Record and Curriculum Inquiry are imp. sources of high quality research in my field and others. We need these if we are to remain a graduate program.
    THEORY & RESEARCH IN SOCIAL ECHILDHOOD EDUCATION Ulrich’s
    SOCIAL STUDIES Ulrich’s
    Curriculum inquiry (Wiley) Ulrich’s

    Good overview of state of ed. research
    EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH Ulrich’s

    These are good scholarly journals and should be retained or they are field specific to important programs or work in our college:
    History of education quarterly (Wiley) Ulrich’s
    International journal of early childhood (Springer) Ulrich’s
    International journal of educational research (Elsevier) Ulrich’s
    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF QUALITATIVE STUDIES IN EDUCATION Ulrich’s
    MIDDLE SCHOOL JOURNAL Ulrich’s
    DUCATION Ulrich’s
    CHILDHOOD EDUCATION Ulrich’s

    on-line that we should keep:
    TEACHERS COLLEGE RECORD Ulrich’s
    THEORY & RESEARCH IN SOCIAL EDUCATION Ulrich’s
    Curriculum inquiry (Wiley) Ulrich’s
    JOURNAL OF CURRICULUM STUDIES Ulrich’s
    EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH Ulrich’s”
