Abstracting & Indexing databases added to Ulrichsweb.com record displays
Our Fall 2007 release introduces the display of abstracting and indexing databases on the "Abstracting, Indexing & Article Access" tab of Ulrichsweb.com records, with indexing coverage dates for many titles. This exciting new enhancement means that librarians, faculty, staff and students can view even more comprehensive lists of A&I coverage than ever before. The new displays provide information about the availability of indexing coverage in A&I-only databases and in databases that contain both A&I coverage and full-text coverage, including databases from Chadwyck-Healey, EBSCO, H.W. Wilson, OCLC and other providers.
Latest annual JCR® Web Impact Factor links available
Ulrich's is pleased to continue its bi-directional linking relationship with Thomson's JCR® Web. Links for the 2006 Science and Social Science Impact Factor journals were updated with the latest release of the 2006 Impact Factor annual data. Reciprocal links have been established to and from Ulrich's, so that mutual subscribers can link back and forth between their Ulrichsweb.com and JCR Web accounts at the journal level.
New in Ulrich's Serials Analysis System
Currency Converter for List Prices
It is now possible for Ulrich's Serials Analysis System users to convert the list price currency provided by the title's publisher into one of more than 15 major international currencies, all from within an active report display. This new feature will allow librarians to approximate a publication's list price in the institution's preferred currency, using daily conversion rates reported by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
New Full-Text Limit To Option
A brand new Limit To option labeled "Full-Text" allows users to limit their results specifically to titles that are available in an online full-text format. This new feature provides a further refinement for identifying electronic versions. The broader Limit To option that was formerly labeled "Electronic Journal" has been renamed to "Electronic Edition" and continues its function of helping librarians identify titles that have an electronic edition of any type - whether that edition is CD-ROM, email-only, online or another electronic delivery format. Both the new "Full-Text" option and the renamed "Electronic Edition" option are available in all of the Ulrich's Serials Analysis System reporting modules, including Top Publisher Reports.
New Academic/Scholarly Limit To Option
A new Limit To option labeled "Academic/Scholarly" gives users the ability to limit their report results to titles that are designated Academic/Scholarly in the Ulrich's database. The designation of Academic/Scholarly identifies serials that target the academic and research communities and is determined by a process of publisher self-reporting and Ulrich's editorial research. The range of Academic/Scholarly titles in Ulrich's includes both refereed and non-refereed serials. The new Academic/Scholarly Limit To option is available in all reporting modules.
LC Classification Numbers in Report Displays
Users have the option to display a new "LC Classification" report column that contains the Library of Congress Classification Number for a title when present in an Ulrich's record. The initial launch of this feature covers approximately 70,000 active-status titles (primarily academic/scholarly titles) and will be expanded to cover thousands of additional titles in the coming months. Users can enable or disable the display of the LC Classification column using the Report Profile feature.
More Designations Added to ISSN Audit Report
Additional designations have been added to the ISSN Audit Report. Users can now generate more details about Cancelled ISSN, Title History ISSN, or Merged/Incorporated ISSN, and better identify Invalid ISSN and other non-match categories. The list of designations has been expanded to cover 10 individual categories within the ISSN Audit Report to give users more information with which to update their local catalog records with ISSN and title data from Ulrich's.
Major A&I Resources added to Aggregator Comparison Reports
Among the new providers and databases added to the Aggregator Comparison Reports are two major indexing resources - Thomson Scientific's Web of Science® and Elsevier's Scopus®. Ulrich's Serials Analysis System users can now compare titles lists from these two vendors to one another, to Ulrich's, or to the library's own uploaded serials lists. It is now possible for users to see how many of their own serials are found in these rich indexing sources by Ulrich's Subject, refereed status, or other data points.
