Gyro Gearloose

Let me tell you about my daily encounter with Gyro Gearloose. The web interface I use to access the literature accepts most of the common abbreviation we use without a glitch. For instance, if I type JACS, the first and only hit is the Journal of the American Chemical Society. Same thing with JOC – until just recently. For the past few weeks, the Journal of Organic Chemistry has slipped down to the second row. Look:

Gyro Gearloose

This is in Swedish, but row three’s “Oppfinnar-Jockes kluriga magasin” would be “The ingenious magazine of Gyro Gearloose” (my translation). This totally makes me smile every single time. Who is responsible for subscribing to this journal from 1982 until present day? (Which you find out if you follow the link – unfortunately, there are no pdf:s and no DOI:s).

Finally, if you could shed some light on what type of literature “Sober Yet Jocular Answer to Heraclitus Ridens” might be, row four, I am all ears.
