EDITORIAL CORRECTIONS

EDITORIAL CORRECTIONS This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract To the Editor: Last month I called your attention to the fact that my paper, "Otosclerosis in Identical Twins," was not published as I wrote it, eg, all the "we's" were changed to "I's." Most of us were brought up to avoid the use of the first person singular and as a rule to use the editorial "we." This and other so-called editorial corrections are very annoying to many authors who express themselves far better than the correctors of their script. In my opinion the writer of a paper should be allowed to express himself in his own words so that the reader may obtain at least a partial picture of his personality. The way things are managed now it almost seems as though the paper had been written by an electric computer. Could you do something to stop the AMA from attempting to prepare all copy in one style? http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Otolaryngology American Medical Association
