Welcome to the ProQuest Social Sciences Content Update, focused on keeping you informed of the journal, news, market research, and other content added and removed from your ProQuest Social Sciences databases between October and December 2015.
- The full text of 6 subscription journals from Sagamore Publishing are now available in ProQuest Education with no embargo. Titles include:
- Global Journal of Health Education and Promotion
- Added full-text coverage for Journal of Benefit – Cost Analysis, an interdisciplinary journal now published by Cambridge University Press which has important applications for public policy.
- Resumed full-text coverage for six titles including New York Jewish Week in Ethnic NewsWatch and St. Anthony Messenger for ProQuest Religion.
As well as the titles added to ProQuest, 90 titles (47 with ongoing full text) were added to ProQuest Criminal Justice that are already in other ProQuest databases such as ProQuest Social Science Journals, Research Library, or ProQuest Psychology Journals on topics such as addiction, information security and law.
Ongoing full-text coverage ceased for eight titles which have been acquired by Sage since originally licensed to ProQuest. Sage does not license their journals to aggregators. Also lost ongoing full text for five titles from University of Pennsylvania Press, who have decided not to continue licensing their journals to ProQuest. Backfiles and ongoing indexing coverage remain in place for all of these.
A number of the social science A&I databases (ASSIA, LISA, LLBA, PAIS, Sociological Abstracts, Social Services Abstracts and Worldwide Political Science Abstracts) have moved to a new editorial system. As a result, content is now loaded on a daily basis instead of requiring monthly updates. The new system enables new issues to be indexed and loaded much more quickly. There are some minor changes to indexing fields as part of this move, which will make them more consistent with other ProQuest platform databases. There is also a shift away from indexing titles selectively. More titles have been added with core coverage in each database, but the majority of titles previously monitored for selective coverage in a given database will not have articles added there in future (though will often have core coverage elsewhere).
