For some issues of Haworth Press journals, there is a discrepancy between the year of publication in the table of contents listing at the Web site and the PDF article files for the issue. For example, the TOC listing for Science & Technology Libraries volume 22, number 3/4 indicates "2004," but the PDF file for "Can Peer Review Be Better Focused?" from that issue says "2002." Unfortunately, some SEPW entries for new Haworth journal issues have been based on these table of contents listings. (SEPB article references are done from the electronic or print articles themselves). In the future, new Haworth SEPW entries will be done like SEPB references.
