Chapter Summary

The success of Nuclear Physics had other less obvious consequences: besides increasing acquisition and printing capacity, it also stimulated innovation. Léon Rosenfeld had quickly supplemented his journal with a letters section, following the example of Physical Review, to be published within one month, just as with Physical Review Letters. This meant that Daan was forced to seek out fast production methods. Gerry had only just arrived in Copenhagen when Léon Rosenfeld announced that he intended to travel, and that he, Gerry, would have to take care of Nuclear Physics. Engelbart (Bart) van Tongeren came from a small but worldwide publishing company for medical extracts. In 1962, when he was asked to join the board of North-Holland, he had succeeded in making this originally insolvent company into a profitable concern, but not in keeping the profits out of the shareholders' hands.
