Bakker, Caitlin J.; Koos, Jessica A.; Hoogland, Margaret A.; Rand, Debra; Alpi, Kristine M. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
COVID-19 challenged information exchange globally, including interlibrary loan (ILL). This project explored DOCLINE ILL borrowing data from 15 academic, hospital, and association health sciences libraries before and during the pandemic to understand gaps in ILL coverage. We reviewed aggregate filled and unfilled borrowing data from March to August…

Cusker, Jeremy – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2018
In 2012, this author published a paper describing a method for using the raw data from Web of Science to examine the journals cited by any given group of researchers and then compare that list to lists of 'top journals' of similar disciplines. It was not a straightforward method to use and required a great deal of effort and spreadsheet work by a…

Cusker, Jeremy; Rauh, Anne E. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2014
Discussions of the potential of open access publishing frequently must contend with the skepticism of research authors regarding the need to pay author fees (also known as publication fees). With that in mind, the authors undertook a survey of faculty, postdocs, and graduate students in physical science, mathematics, and engineering fields at two…
