The review article is the Rodney Dangerfield of medical writing. Review articles get no respect, even though, as discussed in Chap. 5, they are often indexed and counted in calculating a journal’s Impact Factor. Actually, many respected academicians write review articles, for both subscriber-based and controlled-circulation journals. Why do they do so?
