THE National Institute of Sciences of India has recently issued the first number of Indian Science Abstracts, an annotated bibliography of science in India, including abstracts of all papers published in India or abroad on work done in India or based on Indian material. The first part includes abstracts arranged tentatively under nine headings. To ensure continuity under each heading and to facilitate reference, the abstracts dealing with each science have been given a separate pagination with the serial number of the heading preceding it. The abstracts in each section are arranged alphabetically and numbered serially. The general editor is Dr. Baini Prashad, who is assisted by nine associate editors for different subjects.
