Catherine D. DeAngelis leaves JAMA

The editorial describing her time at the journal is here. If you have access to the full version, watch out for the very big punch near the end. A visionary, or provoking deliberate change? Only time will tell. Still, it is very nice to see that she is leaving in the same fashion as she has carried herself since 2000 – pulling no punches.

I think the two prominent past-editors of major medical journals (DeAngelis and Angell) are both very courageous. It is particularly nice to see.
