To the Editor We concur with the viewpoint of Dr Blazer1 that independent research by early investigators needs to be promoted. For this, secondary data analyses can indeed be valuable, as also witnessed by the work of one of the authors of this letter (O.A.).2 However, we are doubtful that it is necessarily the best way to promote independent research among junior psychiatrists.
