In 1970, Steven Korn, currently President and Publisher of Science International Corporation, co-founded Futura Publishing Company and, in 1974, co-founded Futura Media Services. Both firms are now part of Wiley/Blackwell Publishing.
The guiding philosophy of both firms was, simply, to identify, present, and publish medical subject areas of interest to the physician and scientific community which, in turn, would, ultimately, contribute to better patient care. In addition, it was our genuine belief that authors should have a gratifying publishing experience, sharing their knowledge and work with their colleagues and students.
It is with a great sense of pride and humility that we published the works of many of the pioneers and leaders in the field of cardiovascular medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, and pulmonary medicine. We also published a number of works devoted to holistic medicine and the science of life. I hesitate to mention the many dozens of outstanding physicians/scientists with whom I have had the honor and privilege of collaborating with for fear I might, inadvertently, forget to mention a name. Many close friendships have lasted for decades and my world and purpose has been enriched with these relationships.
This has inspired me to reignite the passion and the dream to continue this publishing ethic and, using the current digital format, continue building a library of outstanding books, journals, and meetings to disseminate this information to a much wider audience at a very affordable price.
The five key guiding principles of Science International are:
Immediacy – Fast communication of clinically applicable information
Relevancy – Providing important clinical, state of the art, information to help provide excellent patient care
Portability – Information online, available anytime and anywhere
Accessibility – Reaching out to the authors, contributors, and speakers to create a direct dialogue between the author and reader community
Affordability – Content available at a reasonable price to ensure a wide international circulation of information
