Righting Medical Writing

JAMA. 1985;254(13):1789-1790. doi:10.1001/jama.1985.03360130125043

Dear World's Best Medical Journal (WBJM):  I am sorry to say that I will not be able to send you my manuscript, entitled "In Search Of: 16 Physicians Looking for Another Publication to Add to Their CVs."There are so many journals being published these days, and I receive so many requests to submit articles, that I can fill only a fraction of the demand. As a result, many worthwhile journals must be refused simply because I lack articles to go around.Comments about your journal from two expert reviewers are enclosed. Please remember that, in making my decision, many considerations are taken into account. (You might wish to consult my editorial on this subject in The Collected Wisdom of V. C. Strasburger, M.D., vol 1, p 200.)All copies of my manuscript are, therefore, being sent to other journals. Thanks very much for the opportunity to review your journal.
