Publication of the third edition of this successful book prompts an essay on neurological publishing and reading.
Neurologists read a lot. Judging from their behavior at annual meetings, they also pay readily for what they read. They start with journals that come in many shapes—general journals like JAMA, Lancet, or the New England Journal of Medicine; general neurology journals; superspecialty journals for stroke, epilepsy, movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders, neuromuscular disease, and more. This profusion of information has led to reviews journals, abstract services, and newsletters.
