Dear Ms. Morris,

The "Active" Status indicates a serials publication was active 
and available last time it was checked.

Our update schedule varies based on the cooperation of the 
publisher. Most large publishers provide us with annual updates. 
The other titles are manually researched and updated by our team 
of linguistic editors and consultants.  Some titles are not 
updated as frequently because either the publisher does not 
respond to us or there's just no information available. If you 
subscribe to Ulrichsweb, you see there's an entire set of 
journals with the status "Researched." It indicates we were 
unable to find information on the titles after several tries. 
Once in awhile we will go back and try again.

There are 277 refereed titles with Research status in Ulrich's 
from over 330,000 titles. I do not have information on when the 
Researched status is assigned for each title.

I hope this answers your question.

Thank you,
