Abstract: Many of the characteristic properties of the millisecond pulsars found inglobular clusters are markedly different from those in the Galactic disc. Wefind that one such physical parameter is the surface magnetic field strength.Even though the average spin-periods do not differ much the average surfacemagnetic field is 2-5 times larger in the globular cluster pulsars. This effectcould be apparent, arising due to one or more of several biases. Alternatively,if future observations confirm this effect to be real, then this could beinterpreted as a preferential recycling of pulsars in tight binaries where themass transfer takes place at high accretion rates.
