Preliminary Proposal of Acquisitions of Primary Serial Publications for RESUMED. Selecting publications for the creation of a journal of abstracts is a complex and arduous task if it is taken into account the geometrical growth of the scientific literature and the budget cuts for adquisition that most information institutions currently face. A basic set of primary serial publications was chosen for its processing in RESUMED, the journal of abstracts that the National Center of Information on Medical Sciences publishes for the primary health care sector. With this goal, the Center drew an initial proposal based in the informetric criteria. Afterwards, the criterion of a sample of experts in the discussed issues was consulted. A list of 86 titles that embraces a preliminary selection of publications whose works must be analysed with the aim of processing its abstracts was obtained. The complementing of assesment by information specialists with that of experts in the studied disciplines constitutes a reasonable way for determining the information sources with the highest quality and usefulness.
