The Celator - Index

Does anyone know what happened to The Celator? Did the creators just decide to fold the journal? Has anyone discussed attempting to resuscitate it?

For the pre-1998 articles a complete and organized index was produced for The Celator and is on their website here: https://wgs.cc/celator/celindexpm.pdf
Some articles have abstracts. It is in pdf form and can be searched like any pdf by author and by words.

Thank you for the index! That will definitely help searching the online archives.

Does anyone know what happened to The Celator? Did the creators just decide to fold the journal? Has anyone discussed attempting to resuscitate it?

https://wgs.cc/celator/ says "Kerry published it for another 13 years before experiencing significant health problems and being forced to cease publishing of the journal in its 25th year."
