Dentistry Journals - Moving from Print to Electronic
August is the time of year when librarians can add new journal titles, cancel titles, or add electronic access for new or existing subscriptions for the upcoming calendar year.
As part of this process, librarians at the Bio-Medical Library and the Veterinary Medicine Library are looking at their journal lists and identifying titles that we receive in both print and electronic formats, with the intention of cancelling print versions while maintaining (or sometimes enhancing) electronic access. This is being done to look for additional cost savings that can then be used to add additional electronic journals to the collections.
These are the Dentistry titles that the Bio-Medical Library currently receives both as a print and electronic subscription, where I am considering cancelling the print copy:
American journal of orthodontics & dentofacial orthopedics
British dental journal
Community dentistry & oral epidemiology
European journal of orthodontics
International endodontic journal
Journal of dental research
Journal of aesthetic & restorative dentistry
Journal of oral & maxillofacial surgery
Journal of oral pathology & medicine
Journal of oral rehabilitation
Journal of orofacial pain
Journal of periodontal research
Journal of periodontology
Journal of prosthetic dentistry
Oral microbiology & immunology
Oral surgery, oral medicine, oral pathology, oral radiology & endodontics
Please let me know if you have any concerns about the library cancelling the print format for these titles. We will not cancel the print if the electronic access that is available is â€śembargoedâ€? (e.g. no access to the most current 12 months of articles) by the publisher.
Our deadline for this project is rather soon, so please communicate to me any of your concerns by August 15.
