Koski, Cheryl A.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v28 n1 p63-75 1998
Assesses opinions of physicians regarding science writers by examining the public record in two periodicals. States that in the past 15 years, 34 opinion pieces have been written, consisting of editorials and letters to the editor. Finds that physicians are mostly concerned with timing and content of medical news, particularly violations of the "Ingelfinger Rule" and the press embargo system. (PA)
