Falvey offers extensive access to commercial journals published by Elsevier, Sage, Wiley, Emerald, Taylor & Francis, Springer-Nature, Oxford University Press, and Cambridge University Press, among others. Many factors are taken into consideration in negotiating access to these very costly resources, including alignment with curricula and research activity, journal impact or prestige, indexing, cost structure, actual usage, turn-a-ways, and stated demand.
A faculty member noted high quality, peer-reviewed journal articles relevant to a frequently offered graduate course were accessible using Business Source Premier and SCOPUS, two recommended database for business, and the Library Search Articles and More tool, but access to full text access was only available via interlibrary loan. The faculty member submitted a request for purchase.
As is often the case, the cost of subscribing to the single journal was quite high, but the journal was part of the Henry Stewart Business and Management Journal Collection, which maps to multiple disciplines taught at the Villanova School of Business, including digital marketing, real estate, data analytics, and supply chain management. Bundled with our HSTalks instructional video collection, the Library was able to negotiate for the Henry Stewart Business and Management Journals Collection.
Students and faculty now have immediate access to current issues and backfiles of these journals that publish papers written by applied scholars and seasoned practitioners.
Link to the full text of 22 Henry Stewart journals by using the “find it” button in Business Source Premier or SCOPUS, or by using the Journal Finder.
