The Revista de Investigación Clínica (RIC) was established in 1948. It has been published continuously for 73 years. Until 2009, it was the journal of the Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición Salvador Zubirán (formerly Hospital de Enfermedades de la Nutrición, and later named Instituto Nacional de la Nutrición), and thereafter it became the official journal of the Mexican National Institutes of Health. The history of this journal may be divided into four eras or periods, each distinctly characterized by the trends, and particular editorial policies imposed by the Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Committee in turn. The RIC, since 2015 known as RIC –Clinical and Translational Investigation–, is currently a nationally and internationally recognized scientific journal. This article briefly reviews the most outstanding historical features of the RIC since its foundation.
- My Time as the Editor-in-chief of the Revista de Investigación Clínicael día diciembre 6, 2021 a las 8:01 pm
I was the Editor-in-Chief of the Revista de Investigación Clínica (RIC) from December 1999-May 2014. In this article, I present a review about how I initiated my experience in the RIC as an author, how I became the Editor-in-Chief, the philosophy of the RIC during my time, the type of publications we had and the citations these papers have received today, the special issues and consensus we published and how the RIC became the official publication of the Mexican Institutes of Health.
- My Years as Coeditor of the Revista de Investigación Clínica and the 1993-1998 Readers of Our Journalel día diciembre 6, 2021 a las 8:01 pm
Some information on our readers during my years as coeditor of the Revista de Investigación Clínica are presented on the basis that readers, unlike editors, have no conflict of interest in evaluating scientific publications. The information provided is restricted to the past 6 years (1993-1998) of my 11 years as coeditor since the number of reader visits to our on-line articles began in 1993. The nearly 500 articles published in the 6-year lapse were visited by more than 1 million readers with an outstanding 1998 year of almost 100 articles and near a quarter of a million visits. These figures suggest that our journal became at the end of the 20th Century a valuable information source for physicians in Mexico. It was the original idea that led Salvador Zubirán to launch this journal in 1948.
