Ipswich, MA (PRWEB) August 30, 2007
EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) has acquired ten renowned indexes from SAGE. The deal will bring the leading print indexes in their fields to users electronically through the EBSCOhost® platform, one of the most-used interfaces available for scholarly research.
The following indexes are now owned by EBSCO and will be available electronically via EBSCOhost:
- Abstracts in Social Gerontology™
- Educational Administration Abstracts™
- Human Resources Abstracts™
- Peace Research Abstracts Journal™ (Now called Peace Research Abstracts™)
- Sage Family Studies Abstracts™ (Now called Family Studies Abstracts™)
- Sage Public Administration Abstracts™ (Now called Public Administration Abstracts™)
- Sage Race Relations Abstracts™ (Now called Race Relations Abstracts™)
- Sage Urban Studies Abstracts™ (Now called Urban Studies Abstracts™)
- The Shock & Vibration Digest™
- Violence & Abuse Abstracts™
These are highly-refined, specialized collections in their subject areas. Currently, each index is available in print-only. Online versions, including backfiles and other benefits, such as unlimited use, remote accessibility, multi-database searching, links to full-text, etc. are expected to be available by October 2007.
Stephanie Pearsall, Vice President of Editorial Operations at EBSCO Publishing says these indexes will be an excellent complement to existing EBSCOhost databases. "Making these resources available on EBSCOhost will provide a better user experience, increasing the usage of this important content. Our goal upon release of these databases is to improve backfiles and add a greater breadth of content to their respective subject areas. By October 2007, we expect to have processed electronic content for all of these indexes back to volume one, issue one. These deep indexing backfiles will be made available through the online versions." In fact, these new online databases may be cross-searched with SocINDEX with Full Text™, Social Work Abstracts™, and other related databases via EBSCOhost.
SAGE will continue to publish the print editions of these journals and process claims through the end of 2007. Pricing for these titles was included in SAGE's 2008 journals price list, which was recently distributed to subscription agents. From now through the end of 2007 all subscription (new and renewals) orders will be processed by SAGE. Effective January 1, 2008, orders should be directed to EBSCO.
