An attempt is made to correlate bibliometric data of journals (impact factors, half-life) for scientific disciplines in the exact sciences to bibliotheconomic data (subscription prices, prices per article and holdings). Data are presented for 5399 journals in 131 disciplines, as mentioned in theJournal Citation Reports 1900 (Science Citation Index).

Paper presented at the Fourth International Conference on Bibliometrics Informetrics and Scientometrics in Berlin (Germany), September 11–15, 1993.
