User:Axl, I'm guessing you would like to preserve your anonymity. T.Shafee(Evo&Evo), I did have a general question for the WikiJournal of Medicine. If Axl wants to remain anonymous and this article was published would there be a way to acknowledge that Axl (assuming they're OK with being acknowledged by their Wikipedia user name in an academic publication) is the first author? I know they've put a ton of work into this article. Or would there be a mention that the person whose real name is the "first author" isn't the actual first author? Could et al as the abbreviated form of anonymous editors be designated the first author? Are pen names allowed? I was curious about these kinds of scenarios. Thanks.

I don't particularly feel any need to preserve my anonymity. I have previously rebutted a critique of this article by Hasty, using my real name. I am certainly happy to accept the scrutiny of the WikiJournal of Medicine.
Perhaps most importantly, it has been a few years since I fully reviewed all of the sources. I suspect that some parts of the article are outdated. Axl ¤ [Talk] 17:17, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
Two statements about the article that include my real name. Axl ¤ [Talk] 18:02, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
@Biosthmors and Axl: Hi both. Notwithstanding Axl's previous comment on being comfortable with open identity, I through I'd also add a note here on anonymity/pseudonymity generally. We've so far had to avoid anonymous listed authors, since one of the ICMJE Authorship criteria has traditionally been interpreted as indicating that authors must be identifiable (name, affiliation, contactable):
"Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved."
However, other journals have published items by anon/pseudonymous authors in the past (example). I've been looking into making an ICMJE compliant pocess, but have been shocked that there's currently no published documentation on best practices. What that means is that in the short term, although we can't include an anon/psudonymous authors in the author list, we could include one or more as named 'contributor(s)' at the end of the authors list (same way that we include the et al hyperlink to a full contributor list). Considering that journals are used to dealing with anonymous peer reviewers, it should be possible to eventuially put systems in place. T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 06:10, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
Thank you Axl and T.Shafee(Evo&Evo) for your replies. Axl, FYI, I'm updating deep vein thrombosis right now with the end goal of submitting it to the journal. Maybe 2020 is the year to to get both of these articles published formally. Biosthmors (talk) 14:46, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

Immunotherapy: New compoundsEdit

Should the section mention Nivolumab and Ipilimumab? Opdivo (nivolumab) and Yervoy (ipilimumab) are labeled in both USA and EU at this point, combination therapy just being filed [1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sprevrha (talkcontribs) 21:45, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
