The LSTRCis an NIH-chartered Advisory Committee composed of fifteen authorities such as physicians, researchers,educators, editors, health sciences librarians andhistorians knowledgeable in the field of biomedicine.At its three meetings during the year, the committeereviews new biomedical journals and examines theoverall coverage of specific subject fields to ensurethat  Index Medicus  provides access to important biomedical and health sciences journals publishedthroughout the world.The 3,799 journals being indexed for  Index Medicus  asof April 2002 are listed in four sections:(1)   Alphabetic listing by abbreviated title, followed by full title;(2)   Alphabetic listing by full title, followed byabbreviated title;(3)   Alphabetic listing by subject field; and(4)   Alphabetic listing by country of publicationIn addition, there are three introductory sections whichlist titles that have been newly selected for indexingduring the past year, and titles that are no longer indexed because they either ceased publication or weredeselected as titles to be indexed for  Index Medicus. Updated information about titles newly selected for indexing, title changes, and titles no longer indexed is provided bimonthly as an electronic file “Updates for Indexed Titles.” Both the “Updates” list and the  List of Journals Indexed in Index Medicus  are available athttp://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/libprog.html.In addition, the July issue of  Index Medicus contains acumulative list of all serials that have been selected for indexing or that have changed title since the previous  List of Journals Indexed in Index Medicus was published.***The symbol “s)” is used before titles that are indexedselectively, i.e., indexed only for articles relating to thefield of biomedicine. The symbol “*” identifies titlesindexed in  Abridged Index Medicus , which ceasedhardcopy publication with the December 1997 issue, but is still available online in NLM’s PubMed®database as a search subset limit called “Core clinical journals.” FILING ORDER  Entries in the title abbreviation and full title sectionsare sorted letter by letter. Numbers sort before letters.Special characters are ignored, except for the “&”,which sorts before numbers. ABBREVIATIONS OF TITLES The title abbreviations appearing in the  List of  Journals Indexed in Index Medicus are constructedusing the  List of Serial Title Word Abbreviations(  LSTWA  ).  The LSTWA is maintained by the ISSN(International Standard Serial Number) InternationalCentre. For more information about the Centre and itsLSTWA, please consult the ISSN Web site at http://www.issn.org. DATES OF PUBLICATION The dates of publication appear on the line below thetitle. These data contain the date of the first issue for titles currently published and the first and last dates for titles that have ceased publication or have beensuperseded or continued by another title. Unknownyears are indicated with a “?”. The dates given are publication dates, and do not necessarily represent NLM’s holdings or issues indexed for  Index Medicus .Information about NLM’s holdings and indexingcoverage can be found in LOCATORplus  ,  NLM’sonline catalog, at http://locatorplus.gov. INTERNATIONAL STANDARD SERIALNUMBER  The International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is aserial identifier consisting of a unique seven-digitnumber and an eighth check digit. The ISSN uniquelyidentifies a serial title, regardless of language, and istherefore useful in international information exchangeand in machine storage of serials data. The ISSN isassigned to a serial title by the appropriate nationalcenter of the ISSN Network, which is coordinated bythe ISSN International Centre in Paris. The NationalSerials Data Program (NSDP) of the Library of Congress is the United States Center of the ISSN Network. The ISSN is irrevocably linked to the keytitle of the serial. If the title of a continuing serialchanges, a new ISSN must be assigned to the newtitle. In the  List of Journals Indexed in Index Medicus, the number, if known, is preceded by the abbreviationISSN. More information about the ISSN is available athttp://www.issn.org .  vi NLM UNIQUE IDENTIFIER  The NLM unique identifier consists of either a number with up to nine digits or an eight-digit number followed by an alphabetic character. It is used bymedical libraries in reporting serial holdings data toSERHOLD  , NLM’s database of machine-readableholdings statements for serial titles held by U.S. andCanadian biomedical libraries.   The unique identifier appears opposite the ISSN. In PubMed, this number islabeled as “JID” in the MEDLINE display format. PERMANENT PAPER NOTICE Entries for indexed journals known to be printed onacid-free paper contain the designation ‘ACID-FREE’.The ACID-FREE notice appears above the NLMunique identifier.To report other  Index Medicus  journals printed onacid-free paper, contact: Head, Preservation andCollection Management Section, National Library of Medicine, 8600 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20894.To obtain information about permanent paper and howto indicate its use, see the latest edition of American National Standard ANSI/NISO Z39.48, “Permanenceof Paper for Publications and Documents in Librariesand Archives” at http://www.niso.org/ . SUBJECT HEADINGS All subject headings used are from the most recentedition of NLM’s controlled vocabulary, MedicalSubject Headings (MeSH  ). The appropriate medicalspecialty is used as a descriptor whenever possiblerather than an organ or disease term. That is,DERMATOLOGY is used as a subject heading for JOURNAL of CUTANEOUS PATHOLOGY rather than SKIN or SKIN DISEASES. When a specificheading applies to only one or two titles, a moregeneral heading is assigned.***When requesting serial interlibrary loans from the National Library of Medicine, please include the NLMcall number (or On Order or In Process notation) andthe NLM unique identifier.
