THE INDEX AND HOW TO USE IT

JAMA. 1915;LXV(26):2240. doi:10.1001/jama.1915.02580260034016
Abstract

This number of The Journal contains the index to Volume LXV, July-December, 1915. If this were all the index contained, comment would be unnecessary. It is not, however, simply an index to the matter printed in The Journal, but covers also the articles that have appeared in the principal medical journals of the world — seventy-nine domestic and eighty-one foreign.
