A leading French medical journal, the Gazette Medicale de Paris, quotes the editorial in the Journal of August 5, on medical bibliography, admitting the justice of its statements, but protests against the inference it sees in it that the Index Medicus should be an American enterprise. Heretofore, such has been actually the case, but we have no national prejudice in the matter and will gladly yield the honor of its publication. The difficulty has been that American medical literature, as we have often pointed out, is little known abroad, hence a complete medical bibliography could really only be produced in this country. This difficulty still largely exists, though we trust this will not always be the case. The assumption is, therefore, somewhat justifiable, that if the publication of the Index Medicus is to be resumed, and we hope it will be, it will have to be a cis-Atlantic enterprise.
