My favorite writing place is outside where I can see the sky and feel
the open air. I am told that for me to do that in Chicago, I will have to
add antifreeze to the ink half of the year. Yes, I said ink. While I certainly
use a computer and surf the Web, I prefer the feel of a pen moving across
paper when I write nonscientific prose. It might be old-fashioned, but it
helps my thought process.
I must confess to being somewhat old-fashioned in other ways that are
pertinent to our authors and readers. I believe in the sanctity of editorial
(and academic) freedom. When an author sends a paper to a scientific journal,
the editor and editorial staff must have every confidence that the data presented
are accurate and the conclusions rendered are supported by the data. Likewise,
the author must know that peers will review his or her study and that the
only factors that influence publication are merit and available space. You
all have my absolute word of honor that nothing will interfere with that process
as long as I am editor of JAMA and editor-in-chief of scientific publications,
including all multimedia applications.
