Seeking help with contacting Inter-Research, publisher of Marine Ecology Progress Series

I am forwarding this for Freda Lin at Occidental.   Does anyone have a good contact at Inter-Reserch for getting usage statistics?  At OSU, we get ours through Serials Solution and these are not precise.

Thanks.

Subject: Seeking help with contacting Inter-Research, publisher of Marine Ecology Progress Series

Dear Ms. Webster,

I work for Occidental College Library in Los Angeles. I was wondering if someone from IAMSLIC might be able to help me with a question?

Are members of IAMSLIC able to obtain institutional usage data from Inter-Research? If so, who do they need to contact at Inter-Research to set that up?

Our institution subscribes to Marine Ecology Progress Series (published by  Inter-Research) — print with online access. This journal is the most expensive of all our single journal titles and so we’d like to obtain usage data for it. However, I have not been successful in reaching the publisher by the email provided at their website and our subscription agent only has the email address for the content website manager, who has nothing to do with institutional usage data.

I am just trying to find out if there is another way of going about this before I have to put out a letter or call to Inter-Research offices in Germany for help. I am only a part-time, temporary staff person so any pointer/suggestion you can offer that would save time will be very much appreciated(!).

Thanks so much for your consideration,

Sincerely,

Freda Lin

Pacific Ocean Synthesis: Scientific Literature Review of Coastal and Ocean Threats, Impacts and Solutions

For those of you at the Cyamus meeting who heard Meg Caldwell’s talk, she mentioned publishing the results of the comprehensive literature review done by the Center for Ocean Solutions. The docment’s goal was to indentify and synthesize all the major threats facing the Pacific Ocean. It is now available for free as a PDF. A link to the document along with information about the Pacific Ocean Scientific Consensus Statement signed by more than 400 leading scientists from nearly two-dozen countries can be found at:

Aquatic Commons downloads reach 44,000

Since the launch of the Aquatic Commons repository in July of 2007 both the deposits and downloads have increased steadily.  From 27 documents, the repository has grown to 2,160 items in April 2009.  In April, there were 6,096 downloads.  Of the top 35 downloads,  26, or 75%, were classed as Aquaculture or Fisheries.   These 26 items accounted for 1,320 downloads.  Aquaculture Asia issues were heavily used.  Browsing by Issuing Agency now indicates that we have publications from 44 organizations.  Metadata is harvested by Avano, Google, Google Scholar, BASE, and OAIster.

Join us in sharing information about the aquatic environment.

  • Use Aquatic Commons to help promote and preserve your research
  • Partner with other researchers and organizations to allow them to share research
  • Use Avano to access more than 179,000 full text documents from repositories world-wide
