Il est possible qu’en raison d’orthographes différentes certaines revues n’aient pas été reconnues comme identiques. Il s’agit seulement d’un constat chiffré qui donne le nombre de revues communes ou uniques aux différentes nomenclatures mais il n’y a pas eu, à ce jour, d’exploration plus approfondie sur les revues elles-mêmes.
