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 ...MORE

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...MORE

Posted On: Monday, January 30, 2017 - 10:17 by Megan von Isenburg
Choosing a journal for your newest article is not always easy.

Making Information Free: Open Access & More
Posted On: Friday, October 7, 2016 - 13:56 by Patricia Thibodeau
Easy and immediate access to journal articles still remains a challenge. Even Duke cannot provide access to everything. Journal prices have continued to increase year after year with more and more expensive journals being published. That means important clinical, research, and educational content can be locked up for months, years, or permanently, inaccessible to the patients, health providers, researchers, teachers and learners that need access to them. This problem becomes even more massive when you look at access to information within developing countries, and can become an obstacle as Duke tries to work with global sites to reduce disparities in health, education, and research.
The following three movements are trying to ensure that...MORE

JAMA Says: Talk to Your Medical Librarian
Posted On: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 11:16 by Megan von Isenburg
Want to get published in JAMA? One way to improve your chances is to talk to your medical librarian.
In a viewpoint piece published on September 10, 2014, potential and future JAMA authors are encouraged to improve their review articles by summarizing the literature in a more systematic way. Written by a medical librarian, a physician, and the Deputy Editor, Clinical Reviews and Education for JAMA, the article lays out the process for doing so and exhorts authors to collaborate with a medical librarian. Extensive literature searches are difficult, and a medical librarian can provide expertise to facilitate the process, save time, and reduce bias in the...MORE

Bound Journals Moved to New Home!
Posted On: Thursday, July 24, 2014 - 11:21 by Beverly Murphy
To make way for the new study spaces we are creating on Level 3, the bound (print) journals in the Medical Center Library & Archives have moved to their new home - Duke's Library Service Center on Briggs Avenue.
This move primarily effects journals published between 1985 and 2009/10. While many of our journals are available electronically, some of the older years may not be.
Access to all our stored journals is freely available by requesting scanned copies of articles through our Document Delivery/Interlibrary Loan Services. If you need assistance finding a journal...MORE
