When I began my 5-year residency in internal medicine in 1985, it took me only a short time to realize that reporting clinical research would be a fundamental goal of my training at a university hospital. Indeed, Joan Rodés, MD, the hospital director at the time, advised that new residents pay special attention to publishing as an essential tool to advance their future academic careers. Yet he also warned against “publicitis” and the potential perils of “overpublishing” to the detriment of health care.
