Appendix C: how many active, scholarly peer reviewed journals?

This is an exercise designed to calculate the number of active, scholarly peer reviewed journals as listed in Urlich’s on December 1, 2011, and to estimate the total number of academic periodicals of all types, as these may be reflected in revenue estimates of scholarly publishers. Calculations are based on Ulrich’s Advanced Searches with the search terms listed, and a process to deduplicate titles (e.g. a journal with a print and an online version is listed twice), by adding together the number of print titles and electronic-only.
