We stand on the shoulders of giants.
The idea for this online book originated with the three editors pictured below. While all extremely-well published, they recognized that most authors’ academic work is not directly compensated. And yet, there are entire industries whose sole product is this work—chapters, reviews, research studies, commentary, peer review, etc. The internet, however, offered a chance to invert this system and allow pediatric urologists to publish their expertise in an open manner free for all to read. Dr. Duncan Wilcox noted once, “[Pediatric Urology Book] is the academic work I’m most proud of.”
In 2020, the three emeritus editors graciously offered to pass the torch, hoping to allow for new content and ideas to flourish.
