We review our collection annually - if you think there is a resource we should have, suggest a journal or e-resource for consideration.
The following titles have been added to the Library’s journal collection for 2016:
- Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology
- Clinical Medicine
- Lancet Respiratory Medicine
- Lymphatic Research and Biology
- Student BMJ
- Cell Host & Microbe
- Cell Stem Cell
For a full list of our e-journal holdings please see our A-Z journals list.
If you would like to add a suggestion or to support any existing suggestion (see list of current suggestions below) please complete the suggest a new journal or e-resource form:
All suggestions received are added to the Library’s “wishlist” for consideration during the Library’s yearly Journals & E-resources Evaluation.
Items in this year’s wishlist include:
- Clinical Key
- Clinical Skills
- DSM 5 Library (online)
- Future microbiology
- Journal of Asthma
- JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiment)
- Nature Chemical Biology
- Social Policy & Practice (database/ e-resource)
Journal and e-resource suggestions may be submitted to the Library at any time, however please be aware these are only reviewed once a year during July and August. Your suggestion must be received before 1st June in order to be considered for the following year. (Subscriptions usually run from 1st January to 31st December.)
The Library's information resources budget is fully committed each year, so the funding of new journal and e-resource subscriptions can only be achieved by the cancelling of existing titles/ resources of similar value.
The criteria we use when selecting new content includes:
- New courses/ modules
- Impact factors
- Peer reviewed
- Indexed in databases (e.g. Medline, Hunter)
- Affordability/ value for money
- Demand/ likely usage - who & how many people could benefit from the resource?
- Allows off-site access via Shibboleth
- Licence restrictions (e.g. multi-site access)
- Is the journal or resource available as part of a package?
- Does the journal or package have an offsetting system to reduce Open Access publishing costs (where relevant)
