Note from the publisher
Emerald acquires VINE
Emerald is pleased to announce the acquisition of VINE from the Library Information Technology Centre based at the South Bank University, London.
VINE is a well-respected library journal in the field of information management, electronic information provision, e-publishing and knowledge management. Employing a thematic approach, the journal publishes definitive overviews of important topics for information and library services. The stress is on informative, well-researched writing that will be of immediate practical use to its busy, influential readership.
The journal will continue to be published quarterly with four paper issues, four Internet updates and an Internet archive. The first issue to be published by Emerald will be issue 127. For further information please visit www.emeraldinsight.com/vine.htm
Emerald Fulltext 2003 launched
We are pleased to announce the launch of the latest version of Emerald Fulltext, providing even more sophisticated, online access to leading management and LIS journals.
Emerald Fulltext 2003 delivers more journals than ever before. The addition of 16 new titles brings the total number of titles delivered by Emerald Fulltext to a market-leading 158. The total archive of articles is now over 40,000.
The 2003 release incorporates a host of new features designed to make user searches even more effective. Users will now be able to specify the journals they wish to be included in a search and then refine that search by adding or removing journals. Searching is now also supported by comprehensive context-sensitive help. There is also a re-designed interface, with hyperlinks to all new help pages. Once a search is complete, a new "search result customisation feature" empowers users to select those articles from within the results that they wish to receive by e-mail.
Another significant usability feature, aimed at encouraging users to exploit Emerald Fulltext 2003 to the full, is a highly intuitive browse menu. Through the extensive use of clearly defined options, the in-depth browsing of journals is now both simple and straightforward.
Amongst the key features are user definable subject search alerts. These empower users to define specific areas of interest, to which they will be alerted whenever work in that area is published. Easily updateable, this new feature will keep even the most demanding researcher abreast of all newly published work in their particular area of specialisation.
Emerald Fulltext 2003 can also identify special issues of journals, where the journal focuses on a particular subject, making them easier for the user to identify and select.
Administrators of Emerald Fulltext 2003 are now able to set the parameters of all user searches to include only a pre-specified set of journals, for example, according to an organisation's particular focus or access policy.
Emerald Fulltext 2003 is available for trial by clicking the "try" button on the www.emeraldinsight.com home page.
