The article reviews the state of knowledge of the action and effect of beating on chemical pulps. The view is put forward that the problem is so complex that researchers have been tempted to oversimplify it, but some of these simplifications now may represent a barrier to progress. New approaches incorporating newly developed research techniques are proposed for future research efforts.
