During its long life from 1872 to 1926 its references were chiefly by volume and numbered issues and though not regularly indicated it included the 3rd series, the 4th series, comprising eleven annual volumes and a 5th series of four volumes from 1922-1923 to 1925. The 6th series dates from 1926. No reason for changing from one series to another was evident and it was not due to change of editorship.

Current Contents : In May of 1969, it was announced that the American Institute for Scientific Information had written, following the recommendation of the Editorial Advisory Board, that the Irish Journal of Medical Science had been selected for coverage in Current Contents, Life Sciences and that, in addition they would like to cover the Journal in Science Citation Index. In 1975 arrangements were made for the journal to be reproduced in microfilm by University Microfilms Limited.
The journal changed its size to A4 in 1987 and it adopted the Vancouver system of referencing.
