This journal contains reviews written by prominent people in the field,
often selectively highlighting their own work or work of others
supporting their position. While they are often informative, they are not quite
the objective, comprehensive (including ALL work in field, evaluating the worth
of the results) that I had in mind. This type of review would have to be
continually updated to be useful, a state-of-the-art reference for each subfield.
