The Trouble With Medical Journals

Richard Smith. J R Soc Med.

Figures

Figure 1
Total number of scientific journals and abstract journals founded, as a fraction of date Note that abstracts begin when the population of journals is approximately 300. Numbers recorded here are for journals founded, rather than those surviving for all periodicals containing any “science” rather than for “strictly scientific” journals. Tighter definitions might reduce the absolute numbers by an order of magnitude but the general trend remains constant for all definitions. [From Derek J. de Solla Price, Science Since Babylon. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1961]
