There is a new tradition in the otolaryngology publishing community that, to our knowledge, is unique to our specialty. Editors-in-chief of otolaryngology journals in the United States, and intermittently some of our international colleagues such as the editor of the Journal of Laryngology & Otology in England, sit down together twice a year to discuss topics of mutual interest, maintain lines of communication and friendships, and share perspectives on the evolution of otolaryngology–head and neck surgery, and needs that our journals might help address. To establish these collegial, uninhibited, informative and productive meetings, Robert Ruben, MD, proposed the idea of a Consortium of Otolaryngology Journal Editors.
