Abstract:

To help determine whether a new journal of library research is needed, three estimates of available research are compared with an average-sized journal in the library field. The average number of pages and articles per year (285 and 36) in sixteen primarily American library journals that publish at least an occasional research article were determined by a straightforward count. Three sources of research were examined in order to estimate whether each had enough potential or available material each year to fill a new journal equivalent to the average-sized journal. The three sources were (1) Educational Resources Information Center/Clearinghouse on Library and Information Sciences (eric/clis), (2) rejected but publishable material, and (3) "LIST,""Library and Information Science Today." The first, eric/clis, suggests that almost enough material is available, the second rejected but published barely enough to fill a new journal, and the third, "list," that there is ample potential if the articles are written. (Related documents are li 004 460 and li 004 462.) (Author/SJ).
