A directory of core journals provides bibliographic information about the journals themselves. Anyone who uses the journal literature of the physical sciences or who is considering publishing in the field would find this book useful.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... Each topic has been reduced to an absolute minimum-much more is available in several dozen books to provide easily supplementary information.... The real contribution of a book is established by its wider educational and professional context.... I recommend this book... * Earth Science Reviews *
This little book briefly traces the development of the journal literature and quickly gets down to a thorough analysis of what journals have to offer, how they are produced, indexed, abstracted, and subsequently received. I particularly liked the emphasis on writing scientific journal articles because it includes advice from editors as well as a list of the ten most common errors found in technical writing... * The Observatory *
... dedicated to the author's father, a highly successful scientist...is a fine way to honor one's parents and thank for a good upbringing...The real contribution of the book is established by its wider educational and professional contest...the overwhelming opinion is that the more education ( and the greater ones journal literacy!), the more rewarding ones private and professional life will be! I recommend this book in this context! * Earth-Sciences Reviews *
...a great deal of useful information here, presented in a succinct and clear way. The advice about online searching and on writing articles is particularly valuable, and the lists of key tools and core journals are very helpful. The most interesting feature of the book is the way in which it encourages scientists to do their own online searching and to organize their own document delivery directly from commercial vendors...useful and simple-to-use compendium for physical scientists on their journal literature. * Australian Library Journal *
"Primack's own style is laudably simple and direct.... a useful addition to most science libraries." * CHOICE *
Much useful information... * Florida Scientist *
