The Trouble with Medical Journals

Author: Richard Smith

Publisher: RSM Press

ISBN: 9781853156731

Category: Literary Criticism

The author, who worked for the BMJ for 25 years, sets out his analysis of the current and future trends in journal publishing. The author takes the position that medical journals have many problems and need reform. He argues they are over influenced by the pharmaceutical industry, too fond of the mass media, and yet neglectful of patients. The research they contain is hard to interpret and prone to bias, and peer review, the process at the heart of journals and all of science, is deeply flawed. Editors themselves misbehave. The authors of the studies in journals have often had little to do with the work they are reporting and many have conflicts of interest that are not declared. He discusses current topics including the move towards open access publishing.

Excerpt from The British Medical Journal, Vol. 1: Being the Journal of the British Medical Association; January to June, 1873 The benefit possibly accruing to the science of medicine from the observations of a highly educated class of nurses, such as we have de scribed, is incalculable. Mr. Hinton speaks thus hopefully as to the possible results With persons ever at the bedside, skilled in oh serving with the utmost accuracy, and without disturbance to the patient, all those delicate variations which disease presents, medical knowledge itself might be expected to enter upon a new development.

Malnutrition is a general term for the medical condition caused by an improper or insufficient diet. It most often refers to undernutrition resulting from inadequate consumption, poor absorption, or excessive loss of nutrients, but the term can also encompass overnutrition, resulting from overeating or excessive intake of specific nutrients. An individual will experience malnutrition if the appropriate amount of, or quality of nutrients comprising a healthy diet are not consumed for an extended period of time. An extended period of malnutrition can result in starvation or many other diseases such as scurvy. Malnutrition as the lack of sufficient nutrients to maintain healthy bodily functions is typically associated with extreme poverty in economically developing countries. It is a common cause of reduced intelligence in parts of the world affected by famine. This new book presents leading research from around the world.
