A free tip: there is a difference between the printed and online versions: Ulrich Online specifies if a periodical is peer-reviewed or not; the print version does not. However the Online version is not entirely flawless and has been, though rarely, known to err regarding the peer-review nature of some periodicals. If in doubt, ask a librarian.

2. Cabell's Directory of Publishing Opportunities Series
Cabell's provides you with detailed information about specific journals, including their rejection rate. At this point we carry a selected numbers of issues, including Education, Accounting, Economics, Management, Marketing and Psychology. They are located in Secured Reference, 3rd floor. Ask a librarian.

To state the obvious, the library faculty is here to help you. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach us at the Reference Desk, (718) 780-4513.

SPIN-Sponsored Program Information Network
The Office of Sponsored Research provides access to Sponsored Program Information Network (SPIN). SPIN is the most widely used funding opportunity database in the world and aggregates sponsor information into a single system for quick results and utmost efficiency. SPIN consolidates sponsor information into one system, drastically reducing search times and substantially increasing the likelihood of positive results. Program information is presented in a standard format that allows investigators to quickly compare opportunities so that they can make well informed decisions as to where they should apply for funding.

SPIN is currently available for use by all Long Island University faculty, students, and staff. Through the use of a User ID and password, the system is also accessible from off-campus sites.

To access SPIN, go the Office of Sponsored Research website at: http://www.liu.edu/but01/admin/sr/
