    • 18. Top 10 Journal titles NO ONE would subscribe to…*
      • Obfuscate (1068-8582). This journal has a high impact factor and a respectable reputation in its discipline. We just can’t figure out what it is about.
      • Journal of of Repetitive Statements (1111-1111). Patrons reported difficulty locating this title in the OPAC.
      • De-Acquisitions Librarian (0098-2121). The founder of its sister journal, The De-Circulation Librarian , was eventually caught and featured in Library & Archival Security .
      • Archive for Irrational Mechanics and Vague Speculation (0087-2439) . Don’t miss the July 2006 special issue celebrating “The 100 Greatest Non-Repeatable Experiments of All Time”
      • Journal of Melodrama (0302-7613). LIBRARIANS! Don’t you DARE miss out on our latest issue filled with life-changing insights! Subscribe Today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      • The Pessimist (0000-0000). We couldn’t find pricing information on this journal, but it doesn’t matter. We probably couldn’t afford it anyway.
      • Lackluster Exhortations Made Vehemently (1021-4036). EVERY library should have a subscription to this journal! Maybe.
      • Old Scientist (0000-0002). Our contributors have published, but never perished.
      • Unpopular Science (0823-4068) Endorsed by the ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee!
      • Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of Nomenclature. Series QC . (JOHN-DOEX) A new title change with every issue – guaranteed!
      • * All titles parody current Honnold subscriptions. One of these serials actually existed. Can you guess which one?
