Some have chosen to leave in search of a more stable life; some have chosen to stay, and some have chosen not to move back to Lebanon in the first place. We will interview Lebanese physicians working in Lebanon and beyond to get their opinions about the events taking place in Lebanon, the future of medicine in Lebanon, and the role Lebanese physicians play worldwide in their respective fields, and their connections to their home county. We will highlight success stories, stories that were not so successful, and everything in between. Medical students, physicians-in-training, and attending physicians at different points in their careers will be interviewed.

    Episode 44: An Open Access Journal with no Publication Fees: Is this for real? with Dr. Gregory Nicholas

    Episode 44: An Open Access Journal with no Publication Fees: Is this for real? with Dr. Gregory Nicholas

    Please listen and watch episode 44 of The Lebanese Physicians Podcast with Dr. Gregory Nicholas. Dr. Nicholas is a graduate of the Lebanese American University School of Medicine and currently a plastic surgery resident in Brazil. Through his medical training, he noticed that medical students, residents, and physicians in underpriviliged communities are at a disadvantage when it comes to their ability to publish in peer-reviewed journal. This is due to the cost of publication and to the lack of training and expertise in writing good quality publications. He therefore developed the "International Journal of Clinical Research" whose goal is to connect global communities of medical students, trainees, junior faculty, and established faculty and to publish open access papers with zero publication fee. We discuss how this is working out and how the editorial board and journal supporters are connecting students across the globe to well established researchers to help them publish and promote their research. In this era of rising publication fees, Dr. Nicholas and the team at IJCR are working on reversing the tide and allowing all physicians, medical students, and residents the ability to publish and promote their research.
