    Magnetic entropy change has been studied in a series of polycrystalline samples of La0.75Ca0.25-xSrxMnO3 with fixed carrier concentration and gradual change in the average ionic radius of the La site 〈rA〉. In a fixed crystal structure with orthorhombic or rhombohedral phase, we found that the magnetic entropy change decreases with increasing 〈rA〉. This phenomenon has been attributed to the difference in the volume thermal expansion at Tc which is influenced by 〈rA〉. A smaller 〈rA〉 would be beneficial for obtaining larger magnetic entropy change.
