Measuring the Importance of Scientific Journals. A Case Study at Stuttgart University
Author: Werner Stephan, Stuttgart University Library, Germany
Co-author: Bernhard Graf, Frank Scholze, Stuttgart University Library, SRN
In this paper we describe the evaluation of all scientific journals received at Stuttgart University. The immediate reason for this was a cut in the library’s budget but there were some strategic and conceptual reasons as well. The evaluation is intended to be a first step from a stock-oriented towards a more flexible demand-oriented acquisition strategy. In addition to that it is a first step towards a closer financial cooperation between central and departmental libraries in a traditional two-tier library system at Stuttgart University.
