Two bimonthly science journals debuted last month. Current Directions in Psychological Science, a publication of the Washington, D.C.-based American Psychological Society, brought out its first issue in February. Also bowing was Surgical Oncology, an international journal coedited by surgery professors Courtney M. Townsend Jr. of the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and Pierre J. Guillou, director of the academic surgical unit at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London. Meanwhile, the venerable Annals of Internal Medicine, published by the Philadelphia-based American College of Physicians, reached a circulation milestone in January. Carolyn Clarick, a fourth-year medical student, became the 100,000th subscriber to the 65-year-old journal.
