Open WorldCat has added two new features:

Web users who perform searches at can now sort results using several indices. By default, search results are returned sorted by relevance. Additionally, users can now sort by author (alphabetical by last name), title (alphabetical), and date (newest-to-oldest and oldest-to-newest).

Result sorting joins the recently added “Refine Your Search” faceted browse feature in providing users the ability to better examine large result sets.

Item records in WorldCat’s open-Web interface now include a “Cite this Item” link that provides bibliographic citations in five common styles: APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA and Turabian. Displayed in a separate pop-up window, the citations follow the reference standard for each style.

The citations window cautions users that “formatting rules within a style can vary widely between applications and fields of interest or study,” and that they should apply the specific requirements of a reviewing body.

A trial has been set up for Cabell’s directories for Educational Curriculum & Methods and Educational Psychology & Administration. These are directories for the respective fields which provide current contact information (addresses, phone, e-mail and websites) for a large number of journals. Also, the directories include information on publication guidelines and review information when available.

The directories are intended to help users select those journals that are most likely to publish their manuscript. To further assist in organizing and preparing manuscripts, each directory includes extensive information on the style and format of most journals. Furthermore, each directory describes the type of review process used by the editor(s) of a journal, number of reviewers, acceptance rate, time required for review, availability of reviewers’ comments, fees charged to review or publish the manuscript, copies required and manuscript topics.

Trial ends March 2, 2007

In 2007, OSU libraries’ subscriptions to Blackwell publishing titles will be moving to electronic journal subscriptions. This will significantly increase the coverage available online. While OSU libraries have had electronic access to Blackwell journals since 2002, our access has been limited to the most recent 2 years worth of issues. In 2007, our subscriptions will expand to four more years worth of issues, back to 2002. OSU Libraries currently subscribes to 238 Blackwell journals.
