Gale - Press Room - 2005 - 08 - Thomson Gales Infotrac Onefile Exceeds 10000 Periodical Mark - Home

This announcement from a month ago gives us up-to-date numbers on the number of periodicals and articles available in InfoTrac OneFile. Just remember that this number includes citations and abstracts, as well as full-text. Jane Emerson tells me that the number of full-text periodicals is more like 5,777 (still a pretty large number)! The other good news is that 40% of the periodicals added are peer-reviewed scholarly titles, enhancing the quality of the collection.
