New Elsevier journal agreement

The Library has signed up to the new JISC Collections NESLi2 'Big Deal' journal agreement with Elsevier.

Under the new agreement, which runs for 5 years from 2012 to 2016, we have decided to cancel a few low-use (but usually high-price) titles:

Advances in Mathematics
Annals of Pure and Applied Logic
Dynamics of Atmospheres and Oceans
Information and Computation
International Journal of Multiphase Flow
Journal of Algebra
Journal of Computer and System Sciences
Journal of Mathematical Economics
Journal of Number Theory
Journal of Symbolic Computation
Nuclear Data Sheets
Physics Reports
Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering
The Journal of Chemical Thermodynamics

Nevertheless we will continue to have on-going access to these titles as long as they remain in Elsevier's "Freedom Collection".
Instead we will start subscriptions to several more journals in 2012:
Academic Radiology
Advances in Anesthesia
Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease
Advances in Pediatrics

Annals of Allergy Asthma & Immunology
Annals of Thoracic Surgery
Annals of Tourism Research

Some of these have not been available to us before because they are not included in the Freedom Collection, and others are our best-used, non-subscribed titles in the collection. By subscribing to these titles we will earn permanent access to the content published during our subscription. We are only subscribing to new titles where usage statistics show that a reasonable number of abstracts have been viewed, suggesting that there is demand for these titles.
