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?
  • Accessibility
  • Allows off-site access via Shibboleth
  • Mobile-enabled
  • 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)
