Do medical journals aid communication? Although most persons would consider the answer self-evident, some apparently disagree. For example, last April 4-6, a symposium on Biomedical Communications was held in New York City.1 The New York Academy of Sciences and the Audiovisual Facility of the USPHS sponsored the event. Among its distinguished list of speakers we look in vain for a medical editor; nor does the agenda contain any hint that medical journalism has a role in medical communication.
