NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

If I visit, you may be changing jobs

On a trip to NYC last week, I visited Ivan Oransky at Scientific American. This week he announced he is leaving SciAm to become executive editor of Reuters Health.

I also visited Diana Mason, editor of the American Journal of Nursing. She announced that yesterday was her last day on that job.

Diana will have an endowed chair at the Hunter–Bellevue School of Nursing at the City University of New York. She will launch a center for health media and policy.

Ivan and Diana are two good friends, and two terrific journalists, both headed to exciting new opportunities. We wish them both the best.
