To the Editor: It was a pleasure reading the 20 August 2018 issue of the Medical Journal of Australia, containing many informative, broad‐ranging articles. However, the absence of the authors’ qualifications, which ultimately establish who the authors actually are — possibly reflecting their credibility — may render an article potentially less valid for the readership.
