Description

Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London' with 'curtaiment'. Some of the results have already been published in the Proceedings [Vol.92, 1916, p.477]. Many of the tables should be 'preserved in the archives but not published'. Suggests the figures be reduced in scale, and the curves omitted. As the authors have already published 'exactly similar papers', and 'considering the high cost pf paper and publication', the author should be asked to reduce the paper by removing the 'endless repetition of unnecessary details', especially in the already published tables.
[Published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A, 1919]
