About this time last year a New England Journal of Medicine Perspective piece announced the “collapse” of the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ). Not long after, departed CMAJ editors revealed plans for a new open access journal of their own.
So what’s happened in the ensuing year? CMAJ is still doing very well, thank you. If the journal is indeed on life support you wouldn’t know it from this optimistic piece featuring the new Editor-in-Chief. And the new journal? It has a web site and a title but no content.
