The enormous size and great expanse of the journal literature with relevance to clinical decisions increasingly force physicians to rely on synoptic analyses of current papers rather than on the papers themselves. For many years, such synopses with enough critical commentary for adequate guidance were, in general, available only in occasional review articles; in serial reviews, such as those in The Medical Letter; and in annual surveys, such as those in the Year Book series. The need for more frequent surveys has begun to call forth such subscription series as Journal Watch, published by the Massachusetts Medical Society.
