Top 10 Stories of the Year
No end-of-year wrap-up is complete without a “Top 10” list, and Journal Watch: AIDS Clinical Care is no exception.
The “When to start” issue was the top story from the Editors.
The big hit from Readers was the case of occupational exposure from a source patient who refused testing. (I posted it here this past June.)
Not much overlap between the two lists, reflecting I think several issues:
- Editors are choosing from scientific advances; the readers from what they find clinically useful or interesting. They can be the same thing, but they don’t have to be. (Hardly doubt many were counting on IL-2 to enter the clinics this year, for example.)
- What people read on-line may be different from what they consider important. Some on-line stuff is just fun. Or funny. Or controversial.
- The on-line readership is given a big boost from Physician’s First Watch.
Hope you enjoy, and Happy New Year!
