Medical Informatics, Peer Review, and Open Access

Three issues of JAMIA just arrived, weighing not just on my desk but also on my mind: success is defined by my peers in my new field, medical informatics, as publication in a journal where the readers have to pay for access. After fifteen years as an Open Web advocate, this grates on me.

But I see that change is already underway. While JAMIA is the top journal that I hear about in the office so far, a quick trip to Wikipedia shows that it's second in impact to an open-access journal: Journal of Medical Internet Research.
