A critical appraisal of the anaesthesia literature

  • Nicholas M. Greene
Refresher Courses—Sunday, June 19 (A.M.) Track I


Today’s anaesthesia journals are faced with problems in the quality of materials being published. The stature of anaesthesia as an important intellectual and professional discipline worthy of respect as an integral part of modern practice of medicine is tarnished by publication of these materials that collectively fail to achieve the highest level of quality. Publishers, editors, and authors should respond to the problems by restricting publication only to articles that are demonstrating essential to advancing the art and science of anaesthesia and by slowly but inexorably decreasing the number of articles published and the space available for their publication.
