Having An Overview Creates Perspective!
Without review articles the scientific world would be lost. No one can keep up with the thousands of new articles published daily and stay up to date on the latest developments. To restrict the liberty of scientists to publish their work is not a valid solution to this problem!
We demand appreciation for all those who jump into the vast ocean of new publications, citing and reporting them. The fruits of this work are review articles. These are a great help for all who start working on a new topic or who simply want to stay informed about new developments.
