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. When reviewing specific journal titles, we examined several variables, including usage data, journal price, article cost-per-use, journal Impact Factor, and the number of articles by Duke researchers in the journal.

While these cancellations will mean that the journals will no longer be available for immediate access at Duke, journal articles not available through university subscriptions can be requested through our ...

Journal Changes for 2022
Posted On: Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 23:37 by Beverly Murphy

Several changes are coming to the to the journal collections at Duke.

Duke University libraries have been working together to renegotiate large "Big Deal" packages with Elsevier, Springer, and Wiley. Negotiations are still underway, but we expect that there will be journal cancellations and other changes starting in early 2022. These large "Big Deal" packages of journals function something like a cable or streaming package, where many titles are included for one annual sum and continued access is contingent on continued subscription. We are making changes to both packages and directly-subscribed titles based on data for journal usage, impact, and costs with goals to meet research needs, maximize budgets, and foster a sustainable scholarly...

Changes to the E-Journals Page
Posted On: Saturday, December 11, 2021 - 16:02 by Beverly Murphy

Effective December 16, all links to E-journals will take you to a search for E-Journals on all subjects and disciplines and not just those for the Medical Center Library & Archives. This is similar to searching for e-journals in the library catalog which includes resources for all the libraries across Duke. During this transition, we welcome your feedback, comments and questions at mclibrary-collections@duke.edu.

Posted On: Monday, August 28, 2017 - 00:04 by Beverly Murphy

This year we transitioned to a new e-journals platform which resulted in a few access issues for our e-journals page, but they have now been resolved.

There is however a change in the process for authentication purposes. If you access our e-journals page from off-site, you now have to log-in with your DukeNet ID and password. On-site access is not affected.

If you experience any problems with accessing our e-journals page from off-site, please contact us at medical-librarian@duke.edu or 919.660.1100.

Our E-journals Page has Changed!
Posted On: Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - 14:06 by Beverly Murphy

Effective April 25th, our e-journals platform switched over to the current EBSCO platform, which is the same as what we use for our metasearch engine, SmartSearch.

To navigate this new page:

    • Type in the name of the journal or a significant word from the journal title (does not have to be case sensitive). The system will pick up all journal titles with that word as part of the title. Note: The word may also appear or be mapped to other fields in the record (eg. journal description, publisher information, etc). The former alphabetical (A-Z)...

Proposed Journal Cancellations
Posted On: Friday, October 30, 2015 - 01:35 by Emma Cryer

Since the costs of journal subscriptions rise by 6% to 10% every year, we have to make difficult decisions about what to keep and what to cancel.  We look at usage, cost, and other factors.  We also compare titles based on cost per use of all downloaded journal articles.

The following titles are  proposed cancellations for 2016 based on high cost and low use, thereby having high cost per use as compared to hundreds of other titles. Please send any concerns about these cancellations to: emma.cryer@duke.edu.

The Medical Center Library has recently purchased the LWW Journal Extended Archive Collection of backfiles of 306 journals, offering a range of medical and nursing specialties — from infectious diseases to neurology to surgery. This massive archive includes complete coverage of each title in the collection, from the first volume through 2008. With this collection, we now own historical issues of world-renowned journals such as Anesthesiology, Circulation, and Nursing.  Archival resources are crucial to the research process, providing a valuable chronology of theories and discoveries that underpin today’s healthcare practices and inform future innovations.
