historical practices have changed little with the digital age, leaving in place a mechanism many consider slow, bureaucratic and inefficient
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 13, 2015
The Cureus Journal of Medical Science announced today that it will host an educational webinar examining the time-honored, but often critiqued process for peer-reviewed medical publication. Frequently coined the "publishing odyssey," historical practices have changed little with the digital age, leaving in place a mechanism many consider slow, bureaucratic and inefficient.
Titled "Medical publishing and crowdsourcing: Leveraging the collective intelligence of community to drive smarter, more efficient publication" noted industry expert speakers include John Adler M.D., Stanford University School of Medicine, Adam Bitterman D.O., Fellow Physician, Rush University Medical Center and Michael McDermott M.D., University of California San Francisco Medical Center.
Despite widespread adoption of electronic communication and social networking in other print and visual media, academic medicine has been slow to embrace online tools such as crowdsourcing to more effectively engage and communicate. The potential advantages to both publishing and researching physicians are clear: a smarter, more efficient ability to communicate research to even larger audiences, and deeper examination and discussion by leveraging the global community's collective intelligence. Geared for the clinical specialist, this symposium will explore the advantages and experiences with this rapidly emerging concept.
This complimentary webinar will be streamed live on Thursday, November 12, 2015, from 2:00 pm to 2:45 pm, Pacific Standard Time. Further details and registration information can be found at http://www.futureofmedicalpublishing.com.
