Neurosurgical journals influence neurosurgeons and their patients

(news-medical.net): A compendium of articles in the Journal of Neurosurgery (JNS) provides evidence that specialty medical journals are not only an invaluable resource to physicians and researchers, but to the media and public. Clinical and basic science papers do not have to be published in large, high-impact publications to garner attention, and in fact when it comes to specialized areas of medicine such as neurosurgery, publications devoted to the subspecialty produce many citation classics.

Why Even the Most Pirated E-Books of 2010 Won't Bring Down Publishing

(bnet.com): e-book sales could be the next barometer to measure the strength - or weakness - of publishing. This is because e-book sales accounted for $46.5 million at the end of Q3 last year, according to the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF), which noted that retail sales could be double that figure due to industry wholesale discounts. It's a small but growing number that has publishers worried about the future of the industry, for two reasons: E-books are cheap, and they're easy to rip off and distribute (illegally) for free.
