Infiltrating the mainstream
Posted by Henry Bauer on 2011/01/09
Only the journals and conferences that specialize solely in HIV/AIDS reject Rethinking work automatically irrespective of its substantive merits, as illustrated by Rethinking articles accepted by peer-reviewed periodicals like the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, the Journal of Bioscience, or the Italian Journal of Anatomy and Embryology.
Those publications then lead to further exposure in other venues again, for example Professor Ruggiero was invited to contribute to an edited international monograph on HIV infection, and several of the authors of these articles have been radio-interviewed on several continents. My “HIV tests are not HIV tests” in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons is cited on a medical blog in Rumania. The previous post mentioned a British cartoonist who understands the need for Rethinking.
Another recent illustration of how Rethinking is seeping into mainstream visibility is the website Nurse Tips, “chock-full of resources and tips for the intelligent nurse. Whether you’re and LPN or RN, you’re sure to find additional healthcare knowledge right here.”
The “Top 50 Blogs About HIV and AIDS” includes several Rethinking ventures.
