Synopsis is an electronic and print index to scholarly publications on Greek Studies. Consisting of a PC or Macintosh formatted disk, a print edition of the index, and a copy of Euretes, a computer user's manual that will aid in record retrieval and conversion of information contained in the database, the annual is compiled out of more than 950 scholarly journals and other publications, and out of the holdings of major US libraries, the Library of Congress and the National Library of Greece.Indexing nearly 5,100 journal paper titles and 3,100 book titles, Synopsis covers the areas of Classical, Hellenistic, Biblical, Byzantine, Medieval and Modern Greek Studies. The volume of collected material has been compiled in three indexes: 1) the general listing and the author index; 2) the list of the indexed scholarly journals and other publications; and, 3) the text, geographical, name and subject index
Issues for 1977-1979 include also Special List journals being indexed in cooperation with other institutions. Citations from these journals appear in other MEDLARS bibliographies and in MEDLING, but not in Index medicus.
