To the Editor.—  Several communications with officers of the American Medical Association and the chief editor of the Archives of Psychiatry regarding the matter of pagination in AMA journals, ie, permitting obverse sides of pages to carry scientific material and advertising, have not yielded satisfactory answers to the questions that I raised.This practice compels the binding of journals with advertising matter included. Perusal of a number of journals from this country and abroad indicates that this practice is limited to the AMA journals! Quite a few colleagues have raised objection to this practice, and thus far it has not been openly acknowledged or corrected.I believe it essential that you publish this letter to encourage a wider membership to offer their views.
