This companion book to Making Sense of Journals in the Physical Sciences extensively covers the field of scientific journals in the life sciences with a strong biographical and historical approach to explaining the development of their variety. Written to aid those who see their budgets growing smaller while the price of serials skyrockets, this invaluable guide describes the life sciences journals through the research traditions that have given birth to them. Chapters in Making Sense of Journals in the Life Sciences are illustrated with many easy-to-read graphs for clarity in comparative evaluation. Contributors aim to empower librarians with an informal and witty but accurate recounting of the history of the three major themes in biology over the last two centuries: The functioning adult organism (still the main thrust of basic science education for medical training) the molecularization of biological explanation (how the life of the cell is biochemically regulated, and how the game plan is transmitted accurately or otherwise, between generation of cells: the main thrust of modern biology in the university today) The growing awareness of communities of plants and animals facing environmental changes over time (the holistic, multidisciplinary approach to biology in the field, with the fate of the earth and its creatures in the balance)With this book in hand, the librarian has an opportunity to go beyond the checking of other works. This book enables the librarian to talk about more than just prices; it enables the librarian to approach the faculty member with background which that researcher him/herself needs to judge journals. The librarian can then add information from the cost-analysis concerns he or she faces.This book can promote a consensus concerning the most survivable journals for both the scientific author and the serials collection manager. Serials and science librarians, particularly those who are new or would welcome a refresher to the shifting alliances and agendas of specialty journals in the life sciences, will benefit greatly from Making Sense of Journals in the Life Sciences.
