The Anatomical Record

John Lewis Bremer - Managing Editor (1921–27), 1927–28


With the commencement of the present volume (April 1921) of The Anatomical Record a change has been made in the editorial management. At the recent meeting of the American Association of Anatomists a committee was elected to appoint editors for the two journals of the society, and to serve as an advisory committee for those so appointed. In the case of The A natomical Record the choice fell on me, and it was decided that I should assume the duties of editor at once. Although given the privilege of selecting one or more associate editors, I have decided not to do so for the present, at least, trusting that fellow members of the society will be willing occasionally to give me the benefit of their opinions of certain articles quite informally.

The policy of the journal will not be materially changed, but an attempt will be made to hasten the publication of accepted articles, to adhere a little more closely to the original plan of The Record, and to differentiate it more clearly - from The American Journal of Anatomy.

In order to accomplish these results, it will be necessary to limit the length of the articles printed. No definite rules can be laid down, but in the opinion of the advisory committee papers of five or ten printed pages will usually be much more acceptable than those necessitating greater elaboration; while notes on laboratory methods, preliminary reports, etc., will be considered appropriate subject matter. All contributors are earnestly and confidently requested to cooperate in this policy.

At this time there are many articles already accepted by the former editorial board of The Record and ready for publication. These wdll, of course, be given precedence over later contributions. I have no hesitation in assuming their value, appreciating as I do, and as, I am sure, do all the readers of The Record, the careful and efficient work and the scientific discrimination of the former managing editor and his associates.


All contributions and correspondence should be sent to J. L. Bremer, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Mass.
