NORTH Profusion of academic publications staggers scholars and librarians New York Times Service CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—If an average reader tried to catch up with one year's output of learned publications in the sciences, it would take him about 50 years of reading 24 hours a day seven days a week. This gives some idea of the problem scholars and librari- 07 4AQJ108S2 WEST EAST VA43 <?76 OJ42 44 SOttH AKQIOU OK9 _. Goren Ufc bidding: North East South West 1* 2O 2 A 30 Pass Pass 3V Pass 4V Pass Pass pass Opening lead: Deuce of 0 A detailed chain of inferential reasoning that would have done justice to a "Sherlock Holmes" enabled East to pierce South's impressive fa- c a d e and thereby uncover the one line of defense to send the latter's four heart contract down to defeat. West opened the deuce of diamonds, and East put up the ace. The highly distributional nature of the dummy did not enhance defensive prospects. It was clear to East that even if declarer did not have the king of. clubs he could readily establish North's suit by finessing West for that card, and once trumps are drawn, the dummy would have tricks to spare. To defeat the contract it was necessary for East to construct a hypothetical holding and then proceed on the assumption that the desired holding was in fact the actual distribution. First of all, he placed the ace of hearts in his partner's hand, so that by shifting to a club East would be in position to subsequently obtain a club ruff. Secondly, it was necessary' for West to also hold the ace of spades, or else the defense would be limited to a maximum of three tricks— the red aces and one ruff. Finally, provision must be made for the possibility that declarer had the king of diamonds and would obtain a spade sluff from dummy if the lead were surrendered prematurely. To protect his partner's spade trick, therefore, East shifted to that suit at trick two instead of playing his singleton club. South put up the king of spades, and West was in with the ace. It was now essential for the latter to provide a key measure of cooperation with East's conjectures by returning a club. The desired shift was promptly forthcoming, for from West's point of view unless his partner was extremely short in clubs the defense was powerless to develop another trick. South did his best to fool the opposition by winning the club return with the king and then leading the ten of hearts from his hand as if he were finessing for the queen. West was not taken in, however, and he put up the ace of hearts and led another club, which East ruffed for the setting trick. ans face today as the number and size of academic journals in all fields of study expand at a prodigious rate. "The barriers of research have just fallen," says Louis Martin, associate editor of the Association of Research Libraries in Washington. "The amount of new information is staggering." Many scholars and medical men say the proliferation is the necessary by-product of a burgeoning academic establishment and the creation of many new disciplines—and that it all can be controlled with computer technology. But the outpouring is such that "we've got pollution of the printed word," in the view of Gordon Buchanan, associate university librarian at Harvard. Many feel the "information explosion" is nothing so much as the verbose and vain response to the "publish or perish syndrome" by which a scholar',? advancement depends very heavily on his publications. There are so many scholar- ly journals that no one has been able to count them. Authoritative estimates vary from 200,000 to 600,000 worldwide—though the learned pretensions of many of them are open to considerable question. In Japan alone, there are more than 700 medical journals. Sam Laserow, head of the serial record division of the Library of Congress, estimates that about 15,000 new periodicals, or serials as librarians call them, appear every year — of which perhaps 1,000 can be considered scholarly. However, many of these die after one or two issues. In most college libraries to- day, one can find not only such widely circulated and prestigious journals ai the American Historical Review, Science, Nature and the American Economic Review, but also publications representing unimagined specialties. Nevertheless, the feeling of insecurity this induces iiHiid to be one of the major factors driving scholars into increasingly narrow avenues of specialty in their reading, lest they miss a critical item AT ALL 17 tfOftlft 11th ST.
