NYMC Celebrates 25th Annual NYMC Faculty Author Event
On August 28, members of the faculty gathered to congratulate each other at the Faculty Author Recognition— eagerly flipping through the pages of the faculty author bibliography to see what their colleagues have been up to in the realm of scholarly publication during the year of 2017.
This year marked the 25th anniversary of the celebration representing nearly 20,000 publications collectively and the countless hours behind them from the genesis of an idea, to the background research, to the conduct of a study, to the preparation of a manuscript, editing, proofreading, submitting, revising and finally publication. For the first time this year, all of the publication citations and abstracts were entered into the Touro Scholar repository, the online archive of scholarship produced by all Touro College and University System institutions designed to disseminate and preserve intellectual output, and support individual researchers in maintaining their scholarly legacy.
“We’ve come a long way from the print only bibliography published 25 years ago in 1993. That bibliography included 54 books and book chapters by 40 authors. This bibliography contains 12 books, 119 book chapters, 611 journal articles, as well as web pages, and editorial board listings,” said Marie Ascher, M.S., M.P.H., the Lillian Hetrick Huber Endowed Director, Health Sciences Library.
