We are delighted to report that Emergency Medicine News is once again the No. 1 publication in the specialty of emergency medicine. This marks the seventh consecutive year that EMN has ranked first in readership, meaning that more emergency physicians read EMN than any other emergency medicine publication, including those that are peer-reviewed.
Twice a year, independent reading-pattern surveys are conducted of emergency physicians. The scores are tabulated, and they tell us not only how many of you read EMN, but which columns and articles you find most valuable.
While it is gratifying that EMN occupies the top spot, it is more meaningful to know that you value EMN's contribution to the knowledge of the specialty. You tell us that not only in readership surveys but also in letters, phone calls, and in-person comments at meetings such as ACEP's Scientific Assembly.
We are No. 1 because of you, and we do not take that appreciation for granted. We constantly strive to make EMN better — as reflected, for example, in the new columns that have been introduced in the past year — and to bring you news of the specialty that you just won't find anywhere else.
So keep your comments, opinions, story ideas, and other contributions coming. Drop me a line at Emergency Medicine News, 345 Hudson St., 16th Fl., New York, NY 10014; email@example.com; (212) 886–1209 (fax).
Thank you for your support and for making EMN such a vital part of the specialty.
