Medical professionals are under great pressure to write academic articles and get them published in reputed journals. As publications contribute significantly to the career prospects, promotions, and academic growth, a paradoxical situation exists in medical publishing, where instead of the author being paid for his articles he is expected to pay the publisher to get published. Social media has these days emerged as a reasonably attractive alternative to peer reviewed journals, and many medical professionals have taken to sharing their ideas across these platforms as an alternative to peer reviewed academic publications. The present article discusses the changing trend and the pros and cons of this approach.
