New ED journal free online for 1st year!

I love the move toward transparency in published journals. I believe science and practice benefit from having the public and press and advocates going to the source and having open discussion.

So, excellent news: Advances in Eating Disorders: Theory, Research and Practice is available free online for the first year. I hope it will continue after that!

First issue is out NOW.

DECIDES? BECAUSE??? WISHES???? I guess he and I just don't share the same view of what it is he is discussing!

  6. An excellent example of 'transparency' encouraging healthy, informative debate - I too, am wondering how on earth I will get through the pile of domestic chores I have neglected after a 2nd week of full time work. I need a helper I think so I may continue to immerse myself in these fascinating discussions and published articles.
