Database Overlap vs. Complementary Coverage in Forestry and Forest Products: Factors in Database Acquisition.
Hoover, Ryan E.
This study examines (1) subject content, (2) file size, (3) types of documents indexed, (4) range of years spanned, and (5) level of indexing and abstracting in five databases which collectively provide extensive coverage of the forestry and forest products industries: AGRICOLA, CAB ABSTRACTS, FOREST PRODUCTS (AIDS), PAPERCHEM, and PIRA. The extent to which these databases overlap and complement each other and the ways in which their characteristics affect database acquisition by a commercial online vendor are explored. (FM)
