Podcast 199: Rethinking what medical journals do

(2 votes, average: 4.50 out of 5)

There’s change in the air about science publishing, and Harlan Krumholz, the founding editor of the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, thinks it’s time to reimagine the whole concept of what a journal is and what it does.

He poured his ideas into an editorial, “The End of Journals,” which he published as he approached the end of his editorship. We finally caught up with him weeks later (he’s elusive) and talked about those ideas.

(As this podcast was being readied for posting, the New York Times published an account of Nobel laureate Carol Greider’s posting of work on bioRxiv. She celebrated by tweeting under #ASAPbio.)

    Good information. This podcast, and others that I have listened to, have a great amount of static when the guest is speaking, which makes it hard to understand some of their comments. The host’s voice is crystal clear. Please fix this.Thank you.

      I’m trying to encourage guests to use Skype, which offers better quality than my telephone. Thanks for the feedback! — Joe

    Thank you for the podcast. I think it is best if a transcript of the conversation is also available. That will be also helpful considering the issue JMcK pointed out.
