Print Journal Cancellation Consultation 2016

A number of print journal subscriptions have been identified during our annual review of subscriptions as possible candidates for cancellation.  

It is in light of reduced NHS budgets, increasing costs, pressure on budgets due to currency fluctuations, and the very low use of these titles that we now proposed to cancel them. Given their low usage we anticipate the impact of their cancellation to be minimal but their cancellation would deliver over £5,000 in savings.

The titles are either already available to the University online, are available via legal deposit, or can be obtained for readers if required via interlibrary loan.  

Cancelling these titles in print will make funds available for new online subscriptions of journals that are likely to be more heavily used.

However, please note that this isnt a notice of their cancellation. At the moment were notifying our readers of our proposal to cancel these titles in print and asking for their feedback by December 23rd 2016. We will then make decisions on each of the titles.  

As part of this process, wed welcome any feedback you may have on the importance of these titles to your work. Please respond to Edina Pillok, the BHCL Collections Manager, at edina.pillok@bodleian.ox.ac.uk by December 23rd.

Here is a full list of the titles we are proposing to cancel, together with information on their usage and how access will be provided if we cancel the print subscription.
