Three separate comments on the problems of the Transactions, a general geographical journal published by the IBG. R. J. JOHNSTON ('Death to the general') notes the rise of specialist journals and suggests the Transactions should be scrapped. R. W. STEEL ('A note of caution') feels that Transactions ought to represent the best of British geography and serve as a source of general knowledge about current research. J. W. WATSON ('An excursion on beach combing') regards the raison d'etre for joining any geographical society to be its general journal which keeps one a general geographer - and thus a geographer. -Jennifer Clayton
