The Publication of Physical Papers

Article metrics


THERE is little doubt that there is much to be done towards improving the machinery connected with the publication of papers on physical science. By publication of a paper I do not mean printing and binding and sending it to libraries in inconvenient places, which are open at inconvenient hours, but bringing it under the eyes of those interested in its subject. It is hardly possible to discuss this matter without being personal to journals and societies, so perhaps direct references may be allowed.
