Page name

I think we should probably rename this page to "list of landmark papers in medicine" or even more specifically "list of landmark papers in internal medicine." Suggestions? --Tim

I see your point, but I don't really think of this page as an entry point into the website. I feel like it's not much more than an organizational page for us. That said, I'm fine with either renaming the page to one of your suggestions (I'd prefer medicine over internal medicine, unless you're planning to have additional articles for other specialties), or keeping the current name. --Diberri 23:17, 19 November 2011 (PST)


I also notice that there are at least a few articles (the ASPIRIN article specifically) that are not landmark papers in the research sense of the word but, rather, review articles. Do they belong here? --tbplante

I think this is an older comment, but it's worth discussing for sure. I like the idea of summarizing review articles, because they're perfect stuff for journal clubs. We'd just have to have a different skeleton breakdown of sections to discuss, etc. Maybe we could mock something up at WikiJournalClub:Review Articles/Prototype. --Dave Iberri 12:41, 12 December 2012 (PST)


In the same way that the articles are organized by specialty on the main page, what do you guys think of organizing the list of landmark papers by specialty as well. Personally, scrolling down and down and down is getting cumbersome for me. It will also be faster/easier for me to review the sections quickly. --mlam00:02, 12 December 2012 (PST)

If I understand what you're asking, you're proposing we have one page for each subspecialty, right? I really like this idea. We could do something like WikiJournalClub:List of landmark papers/Cardiology, WikiJournalClub:List of landmark papers/Critical Care, etc. We can then use the main WikiJournalClub:List of landmark papers page to link to all those subspecialty subpages. I'm all for it. --Dave Iberri 12:41, 12 December 2012 (PST)
That is exactly what I had in mind! Great! --mlam 15:58, 12 December 2012 (PST)
