Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.

Dr Nguyen is joined by Friedhelm Beyersdorf of the University of Freiburg in Germany and Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, and Richard Weisel of Toronto General Hospital in Ontario, Canada, and Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. Drs Beyersdorf and Weisel highlight the changes that have been brought to their journals by the digital platform, and they both stress the importance of quality and accuracy in disseminating medical information.
