This journal aims to provide its readers with a swift, yet complete, current awareness service. This is achieved both by the scope and structure of the journal, key features of which are:-
• Careful selection of relevant abstracts (and other bibliographic data) from the latest issues of 4,000 leading international biomedical journals.
• The arrangement, within each journal issue, of abstracts into separate chapters concerning techniques for anatomical studies, histology, topographical anatomy, systematic anatomy, embryology and anthropology. With the exception of embryology, for which chapter information on all animal species is covered, coverage is restricted to normal mammalian organs tissues and cells.
• Detailed author and keyword indexes to allow the reader to locate articles of special interest.
