Can we assess journal use?

Can we assess journal use? Since the 1970s the number of journal use studies has been increasing, especially in the Anglo‐American countries, and nearly every article starts the same: It is price inflation that forces us to check our subscriptions. The same applies today. For a long time libraries have tried to cling to their journal collection because it was thought wrong to produce gaps in the series that might not be repairable. But in the meantime yearly cancellations are the rule. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Performance Measurement and Metrics Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Since the 1970s the number of journal use studies has been increasing, especially in the Anglo‐American countries, and nearly every article starts the same: It is price inflation that forces us to check our subscriptions. The same applies today. For a long time libraries have tried to cling to their journal collection because it was thought wrong to produce gaps in the series that might not be repairable. But in the meantime yearly cancellations are the rule.
