Awesome Journal Titles - helen-louise
Awesome Journal Titles
At the British Library both today & last Friday. I forgot to give you a Journal Title of the Day on Friday, so here's an extra one to make up for it.

Tropical Lepidoptera Research - not for the insect-phobic.

What's Afoot - in a pun of truly stellarwindesque proportions, this is a journal about foot and ankle disorders.

DM: Disease A Month - frankly, the existence of this scares me. How many months before you run out of diseases? Or are there always new ones being found?

I get these journal titles by noting the names as I wander past shelves. Currently, I'm sitting next to Calcified Tissue International. Riiiight.

I have a serious post to make about the British Library, but I'll write that later.

Current Mood: amused amused

I used to live with someone who worked on Parasitology Today...

I used to work in a medical library putting bar codes on books in preparation for computerising the catalogue, and then moving the books to another floor.

Some of the titles were eyebrow-raising, but the one that really stuck in my mind was "The Romance of Proctology."
