Content, including links to external sites is reviewed
and approved by the editor. Where possible the following
types of links or information are chosen based on one
or more of the following criteria:
- they contain reports that have been published in
the peer-reviewed medical or scientific literature
(for example they are listed in PubMed)
- they link to professional or patient-based organizations
whose content would be of relevance to our visitorship
and/or whose missions overlap with our own.
- they link to government web sites whose goal is to
provide unbiased medical and scientific information
to the public.
- they link to news articles of relevance to our audience.
- other than links to sponsors (see Advertising Policy
http://adhesions.org/ad_policy.htm) we try to avoid
linking directly to web sites of medical professionals
unless they contain significant and/or innovative sources
of important information (e.g. photos or videos) that
cannot be found in sites meeting the above criteria.
- In discussing various products that are of relevance
to our audience, we have tried to compile a comprehensive
list of all products without favoring one over another
as well as to provide an unbiased summary capsule of
what is known about that product. Where possible links
are provided to the web site of product manufacturers,
again without preference.
