A new abstract journal has appeared in English under the title Ophthalmic Literature and is sponsored by the British Journal of Ophthalmology. It will work in association with the abstracting service of the British Medical Association for general medical literature, and abstracts will be exchanged with Ophthalmologica Ibero Americana. In addition to the abstracts from ophthalmic journals, it will bring articles with ophthalmic bearing to be found in journals on general medicine, surgery and pathology, as well as in the more purely scientific periodicals on optics, physics, physiology and biochemistry. In addition, general review articles on important subjects will appear from time to time.
This new journal will appear quarterly, with the year running from June to June, the abstracts beginning with articles published from Jan. 1, 1947, and there will be a cumulative annual index.
The editor is Sir Stewart Duke-Elder, and the editorial board includes A. G. Gross,
