SCP Monthly Update — May 2018
SCP has posted the distribution statistics report for the month of April. This monthly report shows net increase or decrease of titles from CDL licensed and selected open access collections. The highlights of our major serial record distributions are Pishu online journals (505 titles) and CIAO online journals (20 titles). Pishu’s full title is China economy, public policy, and security database, a collection of high-value analytical reports intended to guide policymaking in the People’s Republic of China. You may remember that we had to remove CIAO’s individual titles in March 2016 due to platform changes. It’s a welcome change when links to individual titles become available. Highlights of other serials record distributions are Open Access journals (273 titles, includes DOAJ, 246 titles), Oxford online journals (17 titles), Taylor & Francis online journals (28 titles), Wiley-Blackwell online journals (18 titles).
