21 December 2018: Pageviews by topic and chapter

Each topic and chapter page now lists the pageviews (the number of times the page was viewed) for the current year and the prior year. This is posted just above the Table of Contents, and is updated once every 24 hours. This tells authors how many times their work was reviewed and helps us decide priorities for topic updates. For chapter pages, the totals are just for the page with the Table of Contents, and does not include the interior pages.

10 December 2018: New Author Database

We have created an author database and are incorporating it into the textbook. New features are: search all topics by an author, search all authors at an institution, click on author link to get author information, chapter pages and author page will automatically be updated as topics are updated, easier for us to track authors working on a topic. Initially we will add 250+ authors to the database as well as their institutions, which should be done by the end of December. We will then have to merge the author database with the existing 7500+ topics, one topic at a time, which may not be completed until March. We will keep you advised.

We have updated the list of Fellowships Directors, which is posted on our Fellowships page just below the blue box and also posted here as an Excel download. Please advise us of any updates.

14 November 2018: Case of the Week payments

As of 14 November 2018, we are no longer paying for case contributions to the Case of the Week. We will pay contributors for cases sent prior to this date, even if not yet posted. We made this change because it was inconsistent to pay for images contributed as a Case of the Week but not for other images.

4 November 2018: Counting our content

The totals for our recent "count" are posted on the Statistics page at the bottom, or click here. We have 80 chapters, 7,700 topics (each item in the Table of Contents is a "topic"), 38,000 images, 45,000 references, 217 virtual slides and 172 videos. We recounted after we removed links to thousands of images that were broken or went to websites that we consider "unstable". We now require Authors to send us images that they own. We post these images on our server where the links will never go bad. As an alternative, if necessary, we allow links to "preferred" websites, those which in our experience are credible and have maintained stable links over the years. Our preferred websites are IARC, Pathopic, Pubmed (NCBI),, Webpath and Wikipedia. We are gradually removing image links to other websites to reduce the problem of bad links.
