Abstract : The role in scientific communication of secondary publications, such as abstracts and indexes, is traced from the early days of science to the present time in order to elucidate evolutionary trends. A brief evaluation is then given of the current communication network with respect to its evolutionary maturity for the field of science as a whole, and for individual scientific disciplines.
