ISA Covers E-Journals
The current issue of ISA, Volume 35 Issue 8, is a special issue
exclusively devoted to coverage of the complete runs of several e-journals.
As part of an ongoing quality-improvement program, the addition of e-journals
represents a significant coverage enhancement for ISA and an important
step forward in its coverage of the field of information science, according
to the company.
ISA editor Donald Hawkins said: "In the past several years, the
Internet has become recognized as a global publishing platform, and electronic
journals in a wide range of subject areas have sprung up. Information science
is no exception, and we now find a significant portion of its literature
appearing in e-journals."
For e-journals to be covered in ISA, they must include an International
Standard Serial Number (ISSN) and contain substantial research or review
articles in the field. The e-journals included in this issue are Ariadne,
Magazine, First Monday, Issues in Science & Technology
Librarianship, Journal of Library Services for Distance Education,
LIBRES: Library and Information Science Research,
Access Computer Systems Review, and Review of Information Science.
Other e-journals will be added in future issues of ISA.
