Extract

As we enter the 21st century, some reflection is warranted on the condition of the journal. Although CHEST has never suffered from any serious maladies, on reflection it does appear to me that the journal is now healthier than ever. I will enumerate the areas of fitness and let you calculate the Karnofsky score.

We now receive an average of 170 manuscripts per month, about 2,000 per year. This rate is as high as in any year in the history of the journal. What has changed is the nature of the manuscripts. In the past, the large number of case reports and letters inflated the total number of received manuscripts. This is no longer the case. The vast majority of submitted manuscripts are now clinical investigations. My interpretation of this change is that the submitted science has improved.
