August, 1953 issue of Plating


Another Milestone

THE PUBLICATION in this issue of the four papers presented during the initial educational session of the recent Annual Meeting is the result of the policy endorsement granted by the Delegates. All the papers presented at Philadelphia will be published in a similar manner, with discussion, in the succeeding issues of this journal.

The net result of this new policy is the elimination of the usual six to eight month wait prior to publication of technical sessions proceedings that was experienced in the past. The current issue marks the earliest date ever that Convention Papers have been published, and at the same time includes the valuable discussions that followed those papers.
The value of such early publication is unquestioned to those five thousand members who could not attend the Meeting. To those that were present, the benefit lies in the fact that they are now able to study the subject matter more thoroughly, much sooner.

In addition to the above, and as outlined in Dr. Ralph Schaefer’s editorial in the March issue, the papers will be published as a bound volume of Proceedings, ready for distribution by the end of the year. The 1954 Proceedings will include the New York Convention Papers and, it is planned, in addition, to include those technical articles usually presented in this journal.
