Public Library Censors Nutritional Research
Most medical journals are easy to access on the internet through a huge electronic database known as Medline or PubMed. (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez or www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed) This service is brought to you by the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. In other words, by your tax dollars. Generally it is money well spent, until you go searching for high-dose vitamin therapy research papers. Then you will find that you can't find a lot of them. The reason is selective indexing.
"Selective indexing" is a nice name for censorship. After over 40 consecutive years of publication, the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine is still not indexed by Medline. The Journal has just been censored, again, after its most recent application. This marks the sixth time since 1989 that JOM has been rejected for Medline indexing. The decision is made by a review committee privately preselected by NLM. There are no hearings. No public input is allowed.
