MEDLINE ® Analysis Reports
EBSCO offers several MEDLINE analysis reports developed specifically for biomedical libraries. Upon request, EBSCO also provides health sciences libraries with valuable reports specific to MEDLINE titles.
Historical Price Analysis for MEDLINE Report provides a five-year price comparison of all MEDLINE titles listed alphabetically by subject or by title number. The reports include a five-year rate schedule for each title with both annual and total percentage increases. Statistical information is included in each subject area, including total number of titles, total cost per subject, average price per title, percentage change and percent of total MEDLINE titles subscribed to by the customer.
The Survey Report for MEDLINE includes titles to which the customer subscribes that are also listed in MEDLINE. The report includes a five-point Likert scale for evaluative studies.
