Publication date: 11 November 2014



This paper aims to review the current LIS literature for document supply and related topics.


The paper is based on the scanning of about 150 journals, reports and websites, blogs etc.


Of great interest this quarter are two studies on journal half-lives which impact on the embargo length debate. Also a study that shows a decline in the free accessibility of journal articles. More on patron-driven acquisition and Big Deals.


This is the only regular review of the literature that focuses on document supply and related issues.
