The monthly Bulletin of the European Communities, which was first published by the
Commission in November 1958, contains concise factual information about the latest
developments in the Community. It is the only official reference publication covering
all the Community's spheres of activity.
A number of changes have been made to the presentation of the magazine, although
the content and general organization have been kept as they were (subject to the minor
adjustments made each year). The purpose of the new design is to improve readability
and make the Bulletin easier to use by placing greater emphasis on the genuinely
important facets of Community developments and setting out references in a systematic
form.
The most important features of the new arrangement are as follows:
(i) under each heading, the key events each month are singled out and given special
editorial treatment (section I);
(ii) Part One, 'Special features', including the 'News in brief' boxed section, is
therefore being dropped: important texts, such as the conclusions of European
Councils, will be carried in full, either as an opening chapter or in the 'Document­
ation' section at the end;
(iii) the full background references to each item are to be laid out more clearly so
that they can be consulted more readily and the substance of the item can be
put across more succinctly in cases where it is not given special treatment.
The Commission hopes that the new presentation will satisfy the wishes expressed by
those interested in Community development who took part in the survey carried out
in 1989: to have rapid access to a sound, reliable and thorough source of information. contents
