Journal Title Decoders and Helpers

The following are some title/volume lists and "decoder" tools for some of our more complex electronic book and journal packages.  

  • Biochimica et Biophysica Acta decoder
    This journal is divided into numerous sections each with its own website, and the volume numbering jumps around from section to section unpredictably. If you have a citation with a volume number but you don't know which section it's in, this list can get you to the correct part of the journal's website.
  • Brain Research decoder
    From 1979 through 1988, Brain Research started to spin off separate sections for sub-journals and the initial volume numbering had problems with duplication and gaps. PubMed used one series of numbers, but the publisher's website uses the other. This table can help you get to the right place.
  • Comptes Rendus de l'Académie des sciences etc.
    Probably the "messiest" journal around, this has gone through many title changes and splits over the years.  Wikipedia has a page to help you get to the right series and section. (Once you find the right item, come back to UCSD to search for the item in our catalog, Roger.)
  • Mutation Research decoder
    This journal is divided into numerous sections each with its own website, and the volume numbering jumps around from section to section unpredictably. If you have a citation with a volume number but you don't know which section it's in, this list can get you to the correct part of the journal's website.
