Informa Healthcare collection 2009

As previously mentioned, we have subscribed to the Informa Healthcare collection for 2009. This collection comprises about 180 titles. Most of the titles were formerly included in the Taylor & Francis STM (and Full) Collection. In addition, the collection includes the highly regarded Expert Opinion titles and Current Medical Research and Opinion.

Most titles are available on the Informaworld platform. The Expert Opinion titles and CMRO are available on the new Informa Pharma Science platform, and some titles are available on both platforms!

Access extends back to volume 1 in most cases.

See our lists of catalogue records for collection titles and subscribed titles.

Taylor & Francis SSH Collection 2009

As mentioned previously, we have renewed our subscription to the Taylor & Francis Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH) Collection for 2009.

This collection has been significantly expanded for 2009 and now includes over 1,000 titles. The additional titles come mainly courtesy of T&F's acquisitions of Haworth Press and Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.

Furthermore we have updated our records for existing titles in the collection as we now typically have access back to 1997 (or to volume 1 if we or JISC have purchased the backfiles).

Finally, T&F's policy is that newly-launched journals are included in the collection for the first two year's of their life. In year 3 we will lose all access to such journals unless we elect to subscribe to them in addition to the collection. We have temporary access to over 30 such titles.

See our catalogue records for details of the titles included.
