Posted On: Friday, February 25, 2022 - 22:26 by Lesley Skalla, Ph.D.

Journals for 2022: List of Cancellations & Additions
Posted On: Saturday, February 5, 2022 - 09:40 by Megan Von Isenburg
There are several changes to Duke's journal subscriptions for 2022. Library staff across Duke have been working together to renegotiate large "Big Deal" packages with publishers Elsevier, Springer, and Wiley that were up for regular renewal, with an eye toward containing excessive annual increases for journal prices.
