We are proud to announce that the National Library of Medicine, has approved inclusion of the manuscripts published in the "Frontiers in Bioscience" in the Index Medicus and MEDLINE. This approval, only after a year of existence of the "Frontiers in Bioscience", is a clear evidence that manuscripts published in this platform bear a significant scientific value and will assure that they remain as a lasting treasure for the scientific community. The following is part of the letter received by the "Frontiers in Bioscience" from the National Library of Medicine on March 3, 97.
From: NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE
March 3, 1997
Dear Dr. Tabibzadeh:
The National Library of Medicine uses an advisory committee, the Literature Selection Technical Review Committee, composed of authorities knowledgeable in the field of biomedicine, such as physicians, researchers, educators, editors, health science librarians, and historians, to review and recommend the journal titles NLM should index. The Committee recently completed a review of journals for possible inclusion in the National Library of Medicine's MEDLARS system. I am pleased to inform you that Frontiers in Bioscience has been selected to be indexed and included in Index Medicus and MEDLINE on the MEDLARS system. Databases in the MEDLARS system are available online in the U.S. and throughout the world. Citations from the articles indexed, the indexing terms, and the English abstract printed in the journal will be included in the databases.
