Explanation: The following explanation might help you to understand the so-called Ingelfinger rule.
"Most medical developments reach the profession, the media and the public after appearing in one of the major journals. Journals have maintained control over the release of information primarily through the Ingelfinger rule. Developed by a former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, the Ingelfinger rule stipulates that a journal will only print material not previously published elsewhere. Although presentations at medical meetings are exempt and the press can report on them, the rule remains an effective brake on non-journal reporting of medical developments.3 The Internet now threatens the journals' control over the release of medical news, a threat amplified by several concurrent factors."
