Article English OPEN
Solomon, David J (2011)

Iwould like to thank Robert Ferguson, MD and the Editorial Team of the Journal of Community Hospital Internal Medicine Perspectives (JCHIMP) for the opportunity to write this commentary and congratulate them on the launch of the Journal which will serve as a valuable resource for physicians and other health professionals practicing in community settings. I am also very appreciative of their decision to publish JCHIMP as an open access (OA) journal which will add significantly to its value and impact.(Published: 9 May 2011)Citation: Journal of Community Hospital Internal Medicine Perspectives 2011, 1: 6350 - DOI: 10.3402/jchimp.v1i1.6350
