An announcement was recently made in these columns concerning the new journal to be published by the American Medical Association—the American Journal of Diseases of Children. The initial number is now on the press and will be issued promptly on the first of the year. In its articles, in the character of its editorial board and in its mechanical features, this journal will be the equal and a worthy companion of the other special journal published by the American Medical Association, The Archives of Internal Medicine. It is not a commercial enterprise—it is merely another effort of the Association to advance scientific medicine, and especially scientific medicine in America. Already an encouraging number of subscriptions have been received for the new journal. One progressive physician in sending in his subscription says: “I take great pride in the Archives of Internal Medicine, in THE JOURNAL of the American Medical Association and in other publications coming from your press, and I want your baby book from the start.” In order that his file of the new journal may be complete, every physician who contemplates taking it should likewise begin his subscription with the first issue, and thus avoid the annoyance of ordering back numbers, which are not always easily supplied.
