Contributors to Doody's Core Titles (DCT)

One of the hallmarks of Doody's Core Titles is the number of individuals who have contributed to its development - medical librarians, content specialists, the medical book distributors and the staff of Doody Enterprises, Inc. Because of the cumulative efforts of almost 200 individuals, we are able to produce a reliable, annual list of core titles in just over two months.

Content Specialists

One of the unique features of the DCT Lists is the involvement of Content Specialists in choosing the core titles. Central to Doody's Review Service is a network of academically-affiliated healthcare professionals serving as Editorial Review Group (ERG) Chairs in the specialties in which Doody Enterprises reviews books.

ERG Chairs were invited to serve as Content Specialists, selecting titles in the specialty(ies) in which they serve as Chairs that would represent the core titles for a given discipline.

73 individuals from 60 institutions served as Content Specialists, selecting the initial list of core titles.
