Today, just before exploring this initiative, I emailed my fellow faculty members my concerns about adopting one of the journal lists out there as the only “acceptable” one for our faculty. I realize that the initiative’s intentions have some merit, but my understanding of the problem, now strengthened after reading the RRBM position paper, moves me to do everything I can to create policies in my immediate surroundings that will move us beyond the documented vices in the discipline. I will remain vigilant and act locally in all other relevant issues that this group brings to my “radar screen.” Thank you and best wishes!!
