10 Published journal ranking studies ISI Impact factor Inclusion in definitive subject indexes Lack of availability of an institutional e-journal Lack of availability via JSTOR Quality and Usefulness is More Important than Quantity, so EBSCO uses the following to build its collections:

11 Packages Compared (EBSCO and ProQuest): Active Full-Text Journals Provided for Major Subject Indices GeoRef Historical Abstracts Inspec5181,012 MEDLINE6871,391 MLA International Bibliography6841,283 PsycINFO4781,099 Science Citation Index4801,052 Scopus2,0024,391 Social Science Citation Index5481,073 Web of Science1,5113,231 ProQuest Major Subject Index EBSCO NOTE: Journals from the five major open access publishers have been removed from the above totals (PLoS, BioMed Central, Hindawi, Medknow, Internet Scientific)
