This message is to let you know that The Neurologist, a new journal devoted
entirely to the needs of the practicing physician, published its first issue
this January and now has two sample articles posted for your review on The 
Electronic Newsstand.

The Neurologist, edited by Barney Stern, MD, of the Emory University Hospital,
is a new concept in neurologic journals because it is designed to answer 
questions about the commonplace and complex patient management 
issues that practicing neurologists deal with every day.  In each issue 
you will find facts on neurologic disorders, diagnostic approaches, drug 
therapies, and other health care issues that face the practicing physician.  
In addition, readers will get timely coverage of the basic science 
foundations of neurology, including:  neuroimmunology, neurorehabilitation, 
neurodiagnostics, neuromuscular disorders and more -- all in a graphically
enhanced, easy-to-read format.

Sound interesting?  If so, you can take a look at two articles from
our first issue, which we have posted on The Electronic Newsstand.  You 
can find them  at the gopher site (at your prompt simply type
"gopher") by selecting item #3 (Magazines, Periodicals, and 
Journals) from the main menu, and searching alphabetically for THE 
NEUROLOGIST.  Be warned: these articles do not represent a true 
reproduction of the Journal, because gopher cannot support graphics and 
all figures and diagrams had to be deleted from these articles. 

We are currently developing a WWW homepage for THE NEUROLOGIST, and 
we will announce the URL when it goes on-line.  However, to avoid any 
confusion, we would like to make it clear that THE NEUROLOGIST is a
_print_ journal, at least for the time being.  We will post selected 
articles on the Electronic Newsstand and our WWW site from time to time, 
but to receive complete issues you must subscribe to the print journal.

U.S. residents can subscribe to the journal by sending an e-mail message to 
my address (ckaufman at with the word "subscribe" in the 
subject heading and your name and mailing address in the body of the 
message.  You will be billed when you receive your first issue, but if 
you are not satisfied you may cancel your subscription at any time and 
receive a full refund on all unmailed issues.  Those outside the U.S. can 
order by credit card by calling collect (410) 528-8555, or by faxing their

For those interested, I have also attached a list of forthcoming review 
article topics that will appear in the journal to the bottom of this 
message.  Enjoy!
