Excerpt from Annual Reprint of the Reports of the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry of the American Medical Association: For 1914, With the Comments That Have Appeared in the Journal

The reports of the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry of the American Medical Association have appeared from time to time in The Journal. The more strictly scientific parts of the reports, however, both from lack of space and because of their technical nature, have been abstracted or entirely omitted from the reports thus published. Believing that these scientific investigations should be available to scientists in general, especially to chemists, pharmacologists and others interested in medicine, the Council has authorized the preparation of this volume, containing the complete reports of the Council adopted prior to Jan. 1, 1914, as well as the comments which have appeared at the time of publication.

In previous years by far the greater portion of the Councils investigations have not been published for two reasons. First, it was thought that many of the products found ineligible did not justify reports because they were of interest to few physicians; and, second, it was desirable that the manufacturers should be given an opportunity to modify or improve the preparations found ineligible and thus make them acceptable to inclusion in N. N. R.; therefore, publication of reports dealing with rejected articles was postponed so far as possible. The Council having been in existence for nearly ten years, manufacturers have had ample time to adapt themselves to new conditions, and one of the reasons for delayed publicity no longer holds good. So far as the other reason is concerned, inquiries which come to the Council and to The Journal indicate that physicians do, for various reasons, seek information in regard to many proprietary products regarding which no report has been published. The Council, therefore, has decided to make public, even when no detailed reports are prepared, a brief outline of the reasons which led to the rejection of articles, and has authorized the publication of the abstracts which appear at the end of the present volume, under the heading "Abstracts of Council Action."
