TitleReferee's report by Hugh Longbourne Callendar, on a paper 'On osmotic pressures derived from vapour-pressure measurements: Aqueous solutions of cane sugar and methyl glucoside' by Randal Thomas Mowbray Rawdon Berkeley, 8th Earl Berkeley, E G J Hartley and C V Burton
Date[March 1917]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London' with 'curtaiment'. Some of the results have already been published in the Proceedings [Vol.92, 1916, p.477]. Many of the tables should be 'preserved in the archives but not published'. Suggests the figures be reduced in scale, and the curves omitted. As the authors have already published 'exactly similar papers', and 'considering the high cost pf paper and publication', the author should be asked to reduce the paper by removing the 'endless repetition of unnecessary details', especially in the already published tables.
