Abstract

THE “Catalogue of Scientific Papers,” compiled and published by the Royal Society of London, was intended to serve as an index to the titles and dates of scientific papers contained in the Transactions of societies, journals, and other periodical works. This Catalogue is highly valuable to all technical inquirers, and it is a matter of deep regret that the International Conference, held, under the auspices of the Royal Society of London, has decided that the International Catalogue of Scientific Literature, which is to begin with 1900, is to relate to pure science only, applied science being strictly excluded. It is possibly too late to remedy the position, which is probably due to the absence of representatives of technical societies at the International Conference.
