Open Access Biomedical Publisher Using Post Publication Peer Review
The main claims of the paper are:
This study demonstrates not only a lack of coverage of oral cancer in the newspapers, but also inaccuracies. The articles and news items failed to address the evidence available to support oral cancer examination as a tool for early detection of these cancers. These claims are important because Cancer is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide
The methodology is valid.
Some more detailos may be added:
Total Number of Newspapers(Language-wise) included in the study
Inclusion of other print media woulf have given a better picture
This paper outstanding in its discipline because it throws light on apathy on the part of print media and professionals in reaching the public about Cancers
Further studies are required to include other channels of communications

The purpose of this article is to assess the coverage of oral cancer information in newspapers circulated in Hyderabad for 15 years.
Claims are novel but ther is no scientific authenticity to these claims
Instead a retrospective should have been done in cancer hospital or in the deptt. of oral & maxillofacial surgery and the data of the subjects treated for oral cancers in the past years could have provided authentic and informative information and this information could have been supported with sceintific articles in the concerend field.
No it is not at all an outstanding paper and it cannot be presented anywhere
I would like to improve your study design
The paper claims to have found the scarcity and inaccuracy of newspaper articles regarding cacel. From the point of health education this is very important.
The newspapers reviewed are only from electronic archives. Whether this is comprehensive or whether the authors have left out a good chunk of newpapers which are not archived electronically is a concern.
Not outstanding per say as the previously mentioned the extend of coverage of newspapers reviewed is questionable
Have been teaching health education for both undergraduate and post graduate students
The purpose of this article is to assess the coverage of oral cancer information in newspapers circulated in Hyperbad for 15 years.
The study should be expanded beyond newspapers
The article describes in depth the methods used in the study. This study provides a comprehensive analysis of articles and news items in the newspapers of Hyperbad, India. It would be nice to see them expand the study to include more media outlets other than only newspapers.
