Core physics journals survey

Aug 3, 2004 by

Key Perspectives, an independent market research organisation, is inviting librarians to participate to a survey, similar to one done in 2001 about the availability of core journal in physics:

In 2001 many hundreds of librarians took part in a research project designed to establish the extent to which people are able to access core physics journals in their local library. Every librarian who participated received a summary of the results which provided a true insight into the “market share” of core physics journals. We are now repeating the survey to provide an up-to-date view of the accessibility of these journals, and again we will provide a summary of the results to everyone who contributes: the greater the number of librarians who support the survey, the better the results will be. This survey is sponsored by a not-for-profit publisher of physics journals.

We have devised a list of 125 core physics journals using a combination of qualitative and quantitative measures. We simply need to know to which of these journals your library has a current subscription. For the purpose of this project it does not matter whether your library receives its subscriptions in print or electronic format, nor whether your library subscribes alone or as part of a consortium.

Key Perspectives is an independent market research organisation that has been working with libraries, academics, publishers and funding bodies in the scholarly information field for nearly ten years. We are registered under the Data Protection Act in the UK. Your response will be aggregated and your contact data treated confidentially.
