I read your paean of complaint about publishing trends (July 1977 EOS) with limited sympathy. Several years ago I pointed out the most economical and efficient means of publishing Journal of Geophysical Research, namely, a monthly abstract journal covering all fields of geophysics, with number-coded abstracts. At the back of the journal would be a postage-paid reply ‘bingo’ card that would bring individual microfiche copies of desired papers ready for compact filing. The key feature of the system is the individual reprint on microfiche: it is useless to distribute a whole journal on a stack of microfiche, as no one can then develop a satisfactory filing system.
