Abstract THE WORLD now has nearly 6,000 medical journals, with an annual increase of about 100, containing a total of around 2 million printed pages a year. So much is printed in so many places that mere publication of a new fact or idea does not by any means ensure that it will reach all or most of those who need it in their practice or researches. This crisis in medical communication in England is considered by Sir Theodore Fox,1 retiring after 20 years as editor of Lancet. He divides medical journals in England into two types. One is the "medical recorder" whose function is to record new observations, experiments, and techniques. It is the mouthpiece of the laboratory or clinical investigator who is advancing medical knowledge. As a rule, it is the journal of a specialty. The other type is the "medical news" publication designed for the practitioner to References 1. Fox, T.: Crisis in Communication , Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1965. 2.
