Classics in Voice and Laryngology

JAMA. 2010;303(10):987-991. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.252

The editors of Classics in Voice and Laryngology, Ryan Branski and Lucian Sulica, credit Eugene Garfield's “Introducing Citation Classics: The Human Side of Scientific Reports”1 for setting a precedent of submitting seminal articles with commentaries by their authors describing their work. Classics in Voice and Laryngology presents articles cited more than 50 times in the literature from 1967-2007 and also includes commentaries by many of the researchers describing their paths to the research questions, support they received, colleagues with whom they collaborated, excitement they experienced during the research, their pleasure in successful results, and questions they feel remain to be explored. The book is divided into 15 chapters covering anatomy, perception and quantification of voice production, voice therapy, laryngopharyngeal reflux, endoscopic laryngeal surgery, benign and malignant laryngeal lesions, laryngeal scarring and stenosis, vocal fold paralysis, vocal fold augmentation, laryngeal framework surgery, laryngeal dystonia, and laryngeal transplantation.
