Because a personal index system for published reports is so useful in clinical research, it is well worth while setting this up on cards. If the collection is likely to exceed about 200 entries, there are now distinct advantages in also having it on a computer file. Using the simple system described here, one can then carry out very rapid searches within one's collection and can prepare error free reference lists for publications.
