Abstract

POINT OF VIEW Michael A. Rothschild, MD s Internet access has become more commonplace, the scope, content, and influence of the world of online publishing continue to expand. The most common use of the World Wide Web (herewith referred to as the Web) by traditional journals is still the A distribution of material from the printed version. However, one of the advantages of Internet publishing is the inclusion of text and other media beyond the capacity of the paper jour- nal. Some editors have pushed this concept further, to the point of Web-only publication of origi- nal peer-reviewed material, never appearing “in print.” Journals taking this path make it clear that material for such publication, resulting in the “quality filter” of editorial selection is a self-fulfilling prophecy. MEDLINE index- kept in place for all published material and ing has not been universal or automatic for that any work appearing under the jour- journals offering Web-only publication, nal’s masthead, in print or online, under- and concerns remain about the perma- goes the same review process. Further- nence of the online literature. Because of more, major publications with this policy these issues, the American Medical Asso- have secured MEDLINE and Index
