About the book

With ongoing advances and developments in the field of medicine, it is becoming important to collate, concise and bring together new information that is being generated. Thus, we must know the usefulness and applicability of this new evidence. It needs to be accessible to professionals involved in healthcare as well as patients and their families. There are various databases and sources of new evidence but we need to understand the most important ones and use them accordingly. Failure to do so will render all the new developments and evidence unprofitable, and will therefore not benefit all those who it is meant for. This book covers the need of evidence based medicine in today's world. It also gives information about aspects of evidence based medicine in regards to challenges in implementing its recommendations, and areas where it can lead to an improvement. Appropriate examples from the clinical domain/patient experiences will be incorporated when necessary.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Ketrin Polesak

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
