The library of the Institute of Psychiatry is undoubtedly internationally oriented; it stocks writings in languages ranging from German to Chinese. As a foreigner one is bound to be on the look-out for texts in one's own language. In my case this search has until now been unsuccessful. After the librarian asked me whether the Dutch write about psychiatry at all, I have actually given up but at the same time I decided that it was my task to increase awareness of Dutch psychiatry among my colleagues. Although it is true that the Dutch have accepted English as the international scientific language more than any other members of the European Community, Flemish and Dutch psychiatrists do continue to publish in their native language by means of the Tijdschrift voor Psychiatrie, a journal which differs from, for example, its British counterpart by the emphasis it puts on case studies, psychotherapy and philosophical/historical issues rather than on research in the internationally accepted format.
